From We Make Money, Not Art:
On October 12th, 2008, Sierra shot The Penetrated, a series of photographs and a 45 min video in 8 Acts.
Couples are geometrically arranged into compositions of up to 110 bodies with two colours. The Acts feature the various possible combinations of penetrator/penetrated: white man-white woman, white man-white man, white man-black woman, white man-black man, black man-black woman, black man-black man, black man-white woman, black man-white man. The persons’ faces have been digitally erased to accentuate the modular character of the actors. A mirror set at an angle behind the actors multiplies the couples and the viewpoints.
I think I am personally too blase about this stuff to find it particularly shocking. But who would volunteer for this art work. That to me is the more curious question and I would be interested in hearing all of their motivations for participating.
