Power identities and fetish roles outstrip partner selections, manifesting carnal knowledge of the nth degree in Kim Ye’s open source locker room politics. Her performances are corporeal prescriptions: sculptures of desire, paintings of allure, installations and video which are bondage lairs, irresistibly inviting booby traps that provoke but ease into the unexplored, unconventional and the damned. Ye’s influences leave nothing unturned. The sexuality-based paradigm is punk, revolutionary and necessary; roused from BDSM philosophy, it presents multitudes of intercoursed quantum physics; collaboration, intimacy, and conversation about residing in the body you are in and communing with the corporate subculture.
