Anesthesia

2011. 96X62 cm. UV digital print on fine art paper

Tools: Pen, CorelDRAW X5

   On Krafft-Ebing's principal work, 

Psychopathia Sexualis: eine Klinisch-Forensische Studie (Sexual Psychopathy: A Clinical-Forensic Study), which was first published in 1886 and expanded in subsequent editions. The last edition from the hand of the author (the twelfth) contained a total of 238 case histories of human sexual behaviour.

 

   Psychopathia Sexualis is a forensic reference book for psychiatrists, physicians, and judges. Written in an academic style, its introduction noted that, to discourage lay readers, the author had deliberately chosen a scientific term for the title of the book and that he had written parts of it in Latin for the same purpose.

 

   The first edition of Psychopathia Sexualis (1886) presented four categories of what Krafft-Ebing called 'cerebral neuroses': 

paradoxia (sexual desire at wrong time of life), 

anesthesia (insufficient sexual desire), 

hyperesthesia (excessive sexual desire) and

paraesthesia (misdirected sexual desire).

'His work has many references to pop culture.

His installation-cum-shop Ape Fucktory is a playful riff

on production and control'

J. J. Pradier, Satyr e Bacchante, 1834.

James Pradier, Satyre et baccante

1834 Musée du Louvre, Paris

James Pradier (born Jean-Jacques Pradier, 1790 – 1852) was a Genevan-born French sculptor best known for his work in the neoclassical style.

The cool neoclassical surface finish of his sculptures is charged with an eroticism that their mythological themes can barely disguise.

 

At the Salon of 1834, Pradier's Satyre and Bacchante created a scandalous sensation: some claimed to recognize the features of the sculptor and his former mistress, Juliette Drouet, who by then had begun an affair with Victor Hugo. Others like Gustave Thoré excoriated its exhibition of 'dirty thoughts and disgusting action'.
