Genius bottled.
12 February 2005 | by (bristol) – See all my reviews

I saw this in its entirety at the royal academy's otherwise appalling 'Appocalypse' exhibition a few years back. I don't really want to try and theorise about it, but flex seems to be an exploration of the human body taken to its extremes both sexually and physically, and clearly shows (like his music videos) Cunninghams preoccupation with the human form and how it functions when juxtaposed/fused with the Aphex Twins unsettling electronic landscapers. The brutality that Cunningham brings out of the man and the woman in FLEX is superb, and for once it seems that there is actually an artist who is able to create a fight between a man and a woman that doesn't hint that this is a battle of the sexes... rather it just presents people as sexual and violent... its a bit like Sarah Kane's play's. Unfortunately the DVD of Cunnighamns work only contains 3 Mons of this 17 min film.. upsetting..
