Tessa Hughes-Freeland

Nymphomania (1994) 16mm, black and white, 9 min

Genre: Experimental

"NYMPHOMANIA deptics the archetypal personification of female sexuality via the motif if a beautiful, graceful, dancing Nymph. Against the nymph, Hughes-Freeland & Adams present a massively phallicised Pan who is aroused by the nymph's neauty and watches her. The film is a parody of myths of an 'ancient/pagan' essential plentitude and is thus a blackly Comedic critique of attitudes toward the dialectic of male/female sexuality. It locates a sexual mythology specific to Western Culture and deconstructs it via a depiction of its inherent power relationships and by pursuing this trajectory to its logical conclusion." --Jack Sargeant, "Death Tripping", 1995
