superorgane

fotografie, 1993

intro

“Herwig Turk’s „Superorgane“ (Superorgans, 1993), fetishizes the senses as sexually occupied objects. In Turk’s computergenerated photographs, the mirror images of halved body parts make them threatening tools. The eye mutates through its isolation, doubling, and close-up into an unidentifiable organ that resembles a vagina. It becomes both the subject and object of a pornographic gaze.”
Christian Kravagna ARTFORUM International, November 1994, vol. 33.
