‘’Inclusive eroticism in text and image”
At a time when every bare breast or buttock in public space causes a stir, Tatum Hoetmer and Hanneke Wetzer venture into a book of erotic poetry and drawings. The texts and images are an ode to love.
“Lust and love are inextricably linked,” says Hoetmer, who wrote the sensual lyrics. Love is the source of all life. It’s too important to rush into it.”
Tatum Hoetmer is a cultural entrepreneur. She is a singer and DJ and with Being Teased she is taking a new path. She has been writing ‘poezies’ for years, which can now be read for others for the first time.
Eindhoven multi-disciplinary artist Hanneke Wetzer drew her first ‘Being’ on January 1, 2016. Since then she has been making one every day, directly with pen on paper, without a sketch beforehand. She doesn’t throw away a single Being, ‘because everyone can be there’, she says. ‘Fat, thin, young or old, cisgender or LGBTQIA+, sexual, sensual or stripped of all eroticism. Done in minimal pen strokes, so that everyone can identify with it.’
The book will be presented on May 17 at Kelderman en Van Noort in Eindhoven, with an exhibition of Wetzer’s Beings.
