SEX STORY

“My regret is that I didn’t keep a record of our lovemaking”. A traveler who had just lost the love of his life, told me haltingly in a French accent how he still yearns for her. He liked photography, and was obsessed with collecting every important moment in his life, yet only after his partner has passed did he discover that their most intimate relations had been left blank.

 

“Sex”, where in one’s memories is it located?

 

In fact, our relationship consisted of just that one conversation deep into the night. I forget to keep his contact information, yet this phrase stayed with me. We get photographers to document our lives' greatest moments: graduations, weddings, births, funerals. Why not sex?

 

Because of this, I began my intimate portrait project—not portraits of people, but instead seeking to capture the various postures of “sex”: satisfaction, flirtation, emptiness, loneliness, remorse, longing, tranquility…. Before each photoshoot, we would first share our unforgettable sexual encounters or stories, with the person being photographed deciding which memories to disclose, and how it was to be recorded. More recently, beyond “documentation”, there is also the “creation” of sexual experience.

 

If bodies are media for stories, then sex is sharing those stories with each other.

​性愛攝影

「最遺憾的是來不及留下我們做愛的模樣。」一位剛失去摯愛的旅人,用法式英文與我傾訴對伴侶的思念。他喜愛攝影,著迷於收藏生命中每個重要片刻,想不到在對方離世後才意識到親密關係的空白。

 

那時候我意識到 「性愛」也許不只是感官娛樂或生育工具,其實也乘載了生命不同階段的故事。然而,「性/愛」在回憶裡的哪個位置?

 

其實我跟他僅交集於法國旅程中的一夜長聊。他沒有留下聯絡方式,卻留下這句話在我腦海,意外啟發我成為「性愛攝影師」。我開始思考著:許多人找攝影師來收藏生命中許多重要時刻,像是畢業、結婚、新生、喪禮...等,但性愛呢?

 

2015年回國後,我開始「性愛攝影計畫」。不僅是人物寫真、大尺度情慾照,而是傾聽慾望的各種姿態:滿足、挑逗、空虛、孤寂、悔恨、思念、平靜…。由被攝者決定攤開哪些回憶,並共同發想用什麼方式書寫慾望。透過藝術紀錄下人與人間最親密的關係,甚至創造新的性經驗。

 

若身體是故事的載體,性愛就像人與人之間,故事的交流。

受到自身在巴黎的故事與喬治·巴代伊(Georges Bataille)思想的啟發。我試著鬆動「性照」之於大眾的刻板意義,並走出藝術圈以實踐更大規模的社會介入,紀錄那些遊走在蓋兒·魯賓(Gayle S. Rubin)性等級制度中好與壞的慾望。「性愛攝影計畫」透過大眾參與私密攝影與公眾討論,去回應性污名化跟權力關係。

 

也許真實的性不那麼完美,卻更性感。
