The video Sexual Problems consists of four 'statements'. In the first, a naked young man repeatedly appears in front of the camera, accompanied by the sound of a thunderbolt. Every time he is there, he stays a little longer. Then, the fragment ends as abrupt as it started, the young man standing still, his head bend forward. Pieter Baan Müller himself is the protagonist of this video, although, in some of the other statements, we only see his hand, making a suggestive drawing. Sometimes, the different levels of representation become confused, as he starts to act in relation to his drawings. As a whole, the video functions as a chain of associations related to the theme indicated by the title: sexual problems. But, instead of offering a concrete narrative of wat might be wrong, the combination of signs and symptoms provided by the artists remains open for different readings. Read more...
