“This sanctuary space accompanied by the projection of a ritual, serves as evidence to the presence of Sex Magick Warriors. The remains of their practice (roller blades, clothing and objects scattered around in their two sacred colors) are proof of the urgency with which they organize.
“The colors pink and teal are the embodiment of Magick, Art and Sexuality and their use by the warriors – through empathy, telepathy and tactile care- spills the tea on their means for survival in these harsh urban environments.
“The ritual exposes the hardships of this army of lovers and reveals their sensual strategy for self- preservation.
“The talk will focus on the evolution of Suillerot Wilke’s practice centered on their recent body of work guided by queer color theory and human absence. The significance of rollerblading in its urban context as a queer mode of transportation will be discussed, along with strategies of protection adopted by the group of people designated as The Sex Magick Warriors.” Maximilian Suillerot Wilke
The Sanctuary of the Sex Magick Warriors by Maximilian Suillerot Wilke is a video installation at Bunker2 inspired by the two colours redacted from the original design of the Pride flag. The colors pink and teal stood for sexuality, magic and art; from here Suillerot Wilke has created a new video about a group of queer rollerbladers who overcome adversities in urban life and find strength in collective intimacy.
