Tiane Doan na Champassak
Risograph printing by Après Midi Lab in Paris
15 euros + shipping costs
"Alternating seven of his photographs taken in Sonagachi, Kolkata's red light district, with seven yantras designed by his father thirty years before, Tiane Doan na Champassak delivers a vision of the sexual act made sacred. Altogether elegant and suggestive, the yantras are usually geometrical magical diagrams, bearing explicit sexual and esoteric symbolism. Used in the tantric ritual, they possess considerable power and allow both man and woman to surpass their human condition."
Tantra is also available as a limited edition boxed set of gelatin silver photographs printed by the artist, together with reproductions of the drawings on tracing paper.
