Join IAO’s Saskia Wilson-Brown and Attic Lab’s Thijs Elich and Renske van Vroonhoven for an exploration of extractions with a definite blue movie twist. From enfleurage to expression (tee-hee), these three internal explorers will have you – and your body parts – well covered.
In the Sex S(m)ells playhouse, we will start by blind smelling molecules associated with the human and animal body. The group will split up to take on one of three exercises attempting to extract aroma from human materials: We will tincture material taken from the participants’ armpits, do enfleurage on used underwear, and more. Finally, we will make an attempt to recreate the extraction of aroma described in Patrick Süsskind’s ‘Perfume: Story of a Murderer,’ using a (live) human subject – an experiment that will continue through the course of our time in Amsterdam.
Cost: €15.00 per participant
Attendance: Limited to 16 people
