"loveslicer" is a work based on the narrative suspension of a porn film.
The original, frontal, one-way narrative is suspended toward a search for another meaning. Using only pre-existing material, the original narrative is gradually suspended toward a type of audiovisual content that is totally self-celebratory and devoid of the function of the source porn film.

In this work audio and video material are algorithmically treated conceptually the same way: the source material is "sliced up" following random trends, totally altering the chronological unfolding of the original narrative. At the same time about 1h of original video is collapsed into two and a half minutes, thus making the original dramaturgy unrecoverable.

"loveslicer" is meant to be both a celebration and a harsh critique of commercial porn. A market strand that has lost any authorial value, relying on pre-established stylistic features almost as much as seventeenth-century opera. Starting from the first (and only) dialogue (almost unaltered), and slowly unhinging its dialectical-narrative meaning, it is meant to make fun of the clichés that the porn world has now absorbed, getting sucked into it in turn.

The title of the work plays on the unbearable discovery that porn actors do not really love each other.
