Abstract / Summary

EROS: Issue 7 | The Interior

In response to the theme of ‘The Interior’ I wrote a text work that engaged with ideas of the topology of vaginal structures, exploring relations between geometry, eroticism, art practices, critical theory, literature, film, and philosophy. The interior implies not merely physical space, but other conceivable spaces. Using a conceptual language of relationships and intensities, space, dimension, transformation, the writing will investigate a variety of spatial attributes, textures of space, affective bodies; stretching infolding cellular layers, leaking nipples, coarse hair, invagination, a logic of fluidity and fluid mechanics, essentially a resistance to static ideas of space as a container.
The text explored unruly disorderly unfolding affectivities of topological vaginal structures and connections across a network of disciplines concerned with topology as ‘movement-space, of multiplicity, differentiation and exclusive inclusion that have led to new ideas of power, subjectivity, and creativity’ (Jean Matthee, 2011/12).
Including examples of invagination and ‘infoldings’ in Luce Irigaray and Jacques Derrida’s writings, and ideas of becoming topological/topological spaces, in the writings of Celia Lury and Luciana Parisi, Dodie Bellamy’s ‘Cunt Ups’ and ‘The wandering vagina’ in Esther Newton’s essay ‘Of Yams, Grinders, and Gay’s ‘The Anthropology of Homosexuality’.
