Aphrodisia

Aphrodisia is an intervention that demonstrates, by means of a shadow screen, the use of APHRODISIA, a female urinal designed to allow a woman to relieve herself while standing, and which doubles as a bidet and masturbation chair. In its exploration of an ethics of pleasure, this piece intends to outline, through performativity, a political and aesthetic proposal involving pleasure as a feminist category.
