The Destruction Of Experience is a solo show by Amalia Ulman that took place @ Evelyn Yard (London) in October 2014
My body, my glands, the State, this state of mind that I’m in, right here, right now, because of the Levonelle or Next Choice or Plan B. Ticking the boxes of all the possible side effects that the pharma-cis-(t)-male in the cubicle considered as virtual.
Time, ageing, becoming an object and not being allowed to age. Stretch marks and biological clocks. The faux documentary on Justin Bieber’s forehead explains it well: just as expression lines are appropriated from women, forehead lines become a masculine trait as they signify experience. OBP.
How much pain is a normal amount of pain. Nausea and Diarrhea are a girl’s thing.
Calendars are signifiers of death; objects that are perishable from the day they’ve been designed.
The show presents a narrative, through calendars and clocks, about primitive accumulation and the female body as instrument for the reproduction of labor and the expansion of the workforce. Humanity. The series of 12 prints exhibit the same calendar displayed in different pages. One calendar with its twelve pages designed under the effects of the Levonelle pill.
Let’s walk towards the altar, what do we see. Dr. Marijn Dekkers stares at us from his digitally printed memorabilia, from the heart-shaped jigsaw. The melodic instrumentals my Chinese masseuse recommended to me, caress our ears while the jazzy beats from the Zara Home compilation, coming from the other room, the “waiting room”, gives us a migraine. That Jazzy Nausea.
Reaching the Nirvana through Kurt Cobain’s self sacrifice; understanding life by using Justin Bieber as an exemplary martyr.
Flower-shaped Yungdrung symbols and the sickening smell of the artificial Fresh Linen scent. The fabrication of a place of exception in the shape of that bland cross over between a surgery room, a waiting room of a sexual health clinic of the NHS, a community church, a temple, a hospital. Aesthetic that is characterized by its ‘sublime ordinariness’.
