Details

Kristian De La Riva and Emily Russell's Do We Have To Play This Game?, describes through a series of rotoscoped animated self-portraits, the sadomasochistic rituals of power that underlay all sexual relationships. This theme is further explored within Riva's latest solo work, Cut, which explores the sense of trauma experienced after a significant personal loss, through the cartoonesque violent dismemberment of the human body as a radical strategy for cutting away all that hurts.
