KALTBLUT presents: SAUVAGES by Benjamin Tejero. SAUVAGES, through the association of images and words, tries to question nature and sexuality. Inspired by l’Inconnu du Lac (Stranger by the lake) of Alain Guiraudie, SAUVAGES, in natural scenery allows to see a short story, that of two men who meet.
An adonis walks and observes
All wild wolves in the cedar forest
A proud snake sits, twists and then rises
Flawless impudence, however it indifferent
When arrives the great male, salt-and-pepper hair
Ideal musculature, mounts the sap.
Follow the seductive boy to his lair
Lying on the ground, to please him
Flesh unfolds, beneficial caresses
Bestial body, let him do
The bodies twist and then release
Bye tender looks, disturbing atmosphere
The time is no longer to romance, leave and remain silent
Everyone on his way, in a contrary direction.
They get lost
“I’m a French artist/illustrator and I live between Paris and Prague where I founded with 3 other friends Bubahof, a collective of artists which organizes events, including screenings, exhibitions, workshops and tasting sessions which enable guests to gather, share and discuss. I have in my work an editorial practice that is articulated around briefs of lives, mine or those of people who I meet. The challenge for me is to make readable to an audience all these testimonies, these stories I collect, to find them a graphic form.” says Benjamin Tejero
