White on White #5 - All Those Beautiful Boyz

Forget inner values ! Not effort or behavior are the guarantors of social reward and success, but only the outer appearance! or as White on White would put it – the visible surface. Following these logics, the performance duo sketches the vision of a utopian surgical art, that is able to erase cultural and social marks from our faces within seconds, according to context and situation – but whilst our digital profiles seem to comply to body modifications in one click, the human face still proves to be a solid and difficult, sometimes bloody unit.

In this framework, All Those Beautiful Boyz attempts to analyze how european racist concepts have dissolved into contemporary concepts of beauty and are since being violently applied in “all-white”, socially segregated settings, such as for instance the cultural field in sweden or germany. In order to so, White on White sensualizes the relation between seeing and desiring: offering the duo’s bodies – the bodies of european cultural workers – as visible proof of an obvious, unconscious strive for Whiteness.

Crossing discursive and choreographical techniques, All Those Beautiful Boyz works foremost with “projections”, in the very concrete as well as the very abstract sense of the word. With optical illusions and some sweet video stunts, with charme and finesse. White on White puts up the simple question: in how far the screen in the center of the stage does display all essential information of a subject projected? and in how far the body of the performer on stage is ever more than its own virtual image?
