I know a lot of people are heading to New York this weekend for the break and Susan Silas: love in ruins; sex over 50 at Studio 10 should be added to your list!
The images of Love in Ruins documents Silas and her husband in the act of making love. She states “This work is a personal diary about sex and sexuality. It is about the resilience and the decay of the aging body”. The project, which began in 2003, provides an unapologetic look into human sexuality as we age, conveying a sense of passion and urgency that is not often documented. Moving away from the typical depiction of sex and desire as anchored in youth, Silas’s work is striking.
Because of the nature of the work, all works exhibited at Studio 10 are not on her website, but she does provide some documentation:
