the morelense artist Amérika Medina inaugurated her erotic art exhibition “Tua est nox” at the Cuernavaca Museum of Erotic Art (MAEC). This sample is located in room 1 of the museum and is made up of a series of drawings.
During the inauguration, Amérika Medina looked like Femdom or dominactress (woman who takes the dominant role in sexual practices of bondage and submission)accompanied by two submissive characters.
Juan Machín, co-founder and co-director of the MAEC, made the transmission through social networks, and explained that the exhibition “Tua est nox” is made up of graphite and colored pencil drawings, some in large format and others in medium format.
The room text of this important exhibition was written by the artist and teacher Antonio Outón, where he mentions that in the work of Amérika Medina it is impossible to separate Psyche from Eros; in a sexual explosion where desire transcends carnality, madness, and even spirituality.
“Although the eroticism in his drawings is undoubtedly a fundamental vital energy, it is located beyond death in the realm of the unreal, the fantastic and the deliciously intangible. That far beyond suffering that can only be touched with the soul. It is as if sex were made of smoke, or it was a reflection in the water that vanishes when it appears”, writes Antonio Outon.
Likewise, he says that far from capitalist pornography, Amérika shows us, in this series of drawings, scenes after the fact, after intercourse where pleasure has not ended but has transcended or been sacralized.
“We are not here before an adolescent excitement, and even less a premature ejaculation; far beyond violence, it is about a consummate desire that has surpassed anxiety and opened the possibility of peace. A fresh and immeasurable beauty that surprises our time and reminds us that free, detached and imaginative sexual relations are infinite and redefine pleasure beyond the flesh and the mind”.
