Faking It

From January 15-29, 1972 in the Sonnabend Gallery in New York artist Vito Acconci masturbated all day hidden beneath a wooden ramp.  On February 19, 2013 in the Spanish Cultural Center of Santo Domingo, I faked sexual excitement and orgasm beneath a long dining table at which were seated 4 members of the public, selected at random. I meant to question some of the patriarchal and masculine assumptions latent in ‘Seedbed’ by opening a space to examine faking orgasm, as a strategy of feminist resistance.
