Drawing on the exploration of the eruption of repressed desires and polymorphic perversions into the everyday, hinted at in J G Ballard’s experimental novel ‘The Atrocity Exhibition”, from where the colloquial title is drawn, this collection of images explores the emergence of new manifestations of the psychosexual unconscious. In these works libidinal outpourings become manifests through unusual fetishes, unleashed urges and images of polymorphic sexuality, all emerging from the collusion of urban zones and economics, amputated urges and personal explorations of seduction and desire.-xochipublication
