xpace: External Space: We’ve Met Before by Maya Ben David

Maya Ben David’s animation, We’ve Met Before, is currently on exhibition at XPACE’s External Space hosted in the OCAD U Library Services Learning Zone until May 9.

We've Met Before by Maya Ben David; XPACE External Space February 16 to May 9, 2016

Ben David’s multiple layering and weaving of imagery and sound, with explorations into Vorarephillia, gender representation and identity that rise and recede like the tide, reinforces an experience of sinking in and out of a fantasy state.

Vore is characterized by a desire to engage in the imagined act of being swallowed or swallowing whole another in the pursuit of erotic pleasure, which is, like other more impractical sexual acts, usually imaged or played out in fantasy.

On until May 9 at the Learning Zone or visit XPACE to view online.
