Paul Chan: The Essential and Incomplete Sade for Sade's Sake eBook
Paul Chan's monumental projection Sade for Sade's Sake takes the work of the notorious pornographer and philosopher, the Marquis de Sade (1740-1814), as a departure point for a nearly six-hour-long rhythmic study of bodily ecstasy and bodily repetition. Chan brilliantly renders the foremost quality of Sade's pornography--its fanatical appetite not just for the identifying of sexual possibilities, but for their enumeration and classification--as a rhythmic play of silhouetted bodies that fragment into parts, recombine and atomize, in a mechanized copulation poised between manic repetition and wild abandon. This artist's book brings together for the first time the drawings, writings, notes and fonts created during the production of Sade for Sade's Sake. It elaborates the full scope and thoughtfulness of the projection as a fascinating treatment of sex and eroticism, compulsion and joy, the social body and the sexual body.
This unique media rich eBook Edition of Sade for Sade's Sake features includes video clips and never before seen drawings and images. It also features writings by Chan that explore the main ideas behind his project.
Using the work of the philosopher Marquis de Sade (1740–1814) as a departure point, Sade for Sade’s Sake is a five-hour-and-forty-five-minute video projection as well as a constellation of other works that together evoke the spirit of Sade’s radical critique of freedom and reason for the 21st century.
The Sade eBook features:
- Never before seen drawings and source materials.
- 4 video clips from sections of the video projection (iPad version only).
