Finger, Arouses, Ear

Joshua Leon’s recent work Finger, Arouses, Ear (2015) reads like the opening sequence of a piece of film-noir that the artist has unearthed and intentionally doctored through the addition of an abrasive text. Shot underwater, the seductive sequence reveals a nymph who swims and dances in a pool of translucent water. Injected with the semantics of sex and violence, the work toys with the viewer’s appreciation for the perverse, interspersing moments of violence with candid returns the nymph and her seductive dance.
