Suckling, Deirdre Logue, 4:02 (1:00 excerpt), 2005, DV Video

In semi-darkness, the artist sucks at her fingers. An autoerotic performance of consumption, Sucking explores something of the intimacy of addiction.

Suckling is part of Why Always Instead of Just Sometimes, a selection of 12 short works about aging, breaking down and reparation. They are works that describe our need for intimacy and our fears of exposure. They are always, when we really wish they were just sometimes.
