No.1 Faces & Sexy
An erotic/art magazine
the boundaries of pornography
imagery in relation to Art. It is created, designed and published
by Agata Zwierzyñska and
comes out in a limited edition of 500 copies, except for SEXY
No.3, which was a single copy. SEXY resembles 60s and 70s
girlie magazines in its design, its overall impression,
its print-work and topic, but it uses images of todays cliché.
The first issue SEXY No.1 Faces presents a carefully
selected set of porn-film-stills, picturing faces of women in
moment of sexual ecstasy. It also features the script of a 90-minute
porn-film. The follow-up SEXY
No.2 Xmas came out at Christmas99 and featured
a pseudo striptease.
The special issue SEXY No.3 Very was made uniquely
for the exhibition HIDDEN (Baby, Amsterdam), where
some 70 Dutch photographers and image-makers presented works not
developed, works often still in photographic-film form. A buyer
chose the artwork guided by the name of the maker, the short description
of the presented work and the price. He also decided the fate of
the images by choosing to develop the film or keep it undeveloped,
in this way increasing the mystique surrounding the photo-works.
The buyer interacted with the status of the work and stayed solo
owner of an image that he saw even
before the maker did.
magazine is a non-profit project founded by its author. Its low
price is designed to reach a broad public with a cheap
image of high quality.
