Interactive cyber love, queer erotic video works, installations of ‘perverse sexualities', cruising experiences, romantic machines, subversive maternal intimacies, eco-sex sessions, one-to-one skin encounters, live feminist porn interventions, dark and camp songs of seduction, radical self-love, a pole-dancing chrysalis ambient, butch & femme cabaret, magic tricks and… free ear piercings!

My video work 'Dry Hump, Wet Dreams' (2016) is coming to London and getting screened as paet of this exciting event!

CUNTemporary is a non-profit organisation that works with individuals and groups that explore feminist and queer art practices and theories. CUNTemporary provides a newsletter and daily listings of events related to feminist and queer art practices in the UK.
The events team curates talks, screenings, exhibitions, performances, events and club nights with the participation of a multidisciplinary and international group of artists, performers and theorists, mainly in London, but also around the UK and abroad.
We welcome networking and collaborative opportunities from curators, academics, artists, activists, institutions and alternative venues.
As an organisation we have remained entirely self-funded since our establishment in 2012, and have been organising our activities thanks to a dedicated team of designers, artists, technicians, researchers, editors and curators.

If you arelucky enough to be in London, the conference ‘Love, Pain & Intimacy in Live Art’ will run inconjunction with DEEP TRASH ROMANCE.

Drawing from the pains and pleasures of subversive parenting, sexual/asexual encounters, tattoo and skin-based practices and Black dance communities, artists and writers discuss the affective relations involved in live art practices.
Presentations by Ivan Lupi, Rachael Young, Emie // Eva-Marie Elg as E-ME 2.0, Nicola Hunter and keynote lecture by Dominic Johnson (Reader in Performance and Visual Culture, Queen Mary University of London).
