    Exploration of sex and the body by Taiwanese contemporary artist Hou Chun Ming (1963-). During the Body Images project Hou interviewed participants over the course of two days asking questions such as “What is sex to you?”, and exploring intimate moments of interviewees sexual lives, from the first time they had sex, to sexual fantasy and explorations in BDSM. The sexual experiences of the interviewee’s were not isolated but taken within the context of their entire life’s history as told to Hou. At the end of the second day, participants would receive a long sensual massage before drawing a life size portrait of themselves, naked on the ground. After the interview process Hou would then create a work based on the interviewee’s life story, a projected image, created from fragmented interview information. The two works are then displayed together. Unrecorded in OCLC at October, 2021.
