Piotr Uklanski - Pornalikes

Edition Patrick Frey

€52.00
"Pornalikes" is a book of portraits with a difference, culled from a 2002-2018 photo archive of porn actors who resemble or actually even portray celebrities and public figures. Polish artist Piotr Uklanski draws on a stock of hard and soft copies of dirty, glossy men's magazines like Hustler and Loaded - as well as a plethora of meme culture material dumped on websites and blogs. It explores the pop-cultural tensions between sexual identity and exploitation, man and woman, fiction and reality, real biography and the story that comes out in the press. Delving into these dichotomies, "Pornalikes" picks up where the cult series 'The Nazi's and 'Real Nazis', also published by Edition Patrick Frey, left off.
