_

I am touching a screen, tapping on the keys to articulate my love. My fingertips feel the electricity running between us, it travels to my nipple through the cable that is plugged into the hole behind.

Onur Tayranoğlu invites you to witness a transmedia showing that orbits around their current artistic research.

Unpacking the different degrees of that which is private, semi-private or public in regards to the physical and conceptual organisations of intimacy; Plug’n’Play is an ongoing performative inquiry imagined through cybersexual practices being taken out of their usual context and presented elsewhere, translated else how. 

Onur has been putting out a series of performances in the form of bodily and conceptual research. MUU Helsinki Contemporary Art Centre will be hosting the byproducts of this performative process; alongside acting as an added space in which the performance will be recontextualized and reproduced with the witnessing of the audience.
  
Setting the grounds for a role-play, Onur has invited their collaborators Anna Pietilä, Jon Pettersson, Lempi Koponen over a span of five months, together forming a workgroup, walking and moaning towards a perhaps nonexistent climax, as artistic partners.

Obscuring the familiar confines of both the virtual and the actual, the personal and the cultural, they seduce the limits of performance to the extent of the materials and the methodologies being used throughout the installation. 

Edging for a while, the embodiment of Plug’n’Play seeks just the right amount of attention whilst keeping it uncannily mysterious, for the pleasure cycles to be completed. 

Until a next edging, Onur
