Nightmares Where There Are No Limits!
The art porn duo: Inside Flesh

Most porn is set in a Bizarro World with bizarro logic, where pizza delivery boys accept sexual favors in lieu of minimum wage and women can orgasm solely through penetration. But while this fantasy universe bears a passing resemblance to real life, the videos made by Inside Flesh seem to take place in a completely different plane, like a purgatory programmed by Alexander McQueen and David Lynch.

In the world of Inside Flesh, a chained couple with bandaged faces writhe in a frenzy inside a woman’s head; two sybarites play ancient games in a cage; a woman has sex with her nightmare. The denizens of these films wear fine leather couture but rendezvous in ghost towns and abandoned hotels. The sounds of fucking have been scrapped, replaced instead with a thrumming soundtrack that fluctuates between hypnosis and high anxiety. Aesthetically, Inside Flesh is so far from most porn that it dares you to call it something else. But that would be a huge mistake.

“There are individuals who, after watching our films, try to convince us that we don’t do porn, that it’s art,” said Sylvia Lajbig, co-creator of Inside Flesh. “That we are wrong to label our works as pornography, that we banish and impose burden on ourselves. But what is another name for a film where a detailed sexual act is shown? Why can’t porn and art be joined?”

Inside Flesh has been joining porn and art since 2007, when it was founded by Poland-based artist collective SUKA OFF — husband and wife team Piotr Wegrzynski and Lajbig. Their hyper-stylized, S&M-tinged films have featured both amateurs with day jobs and professional porn actors like Owen Gray. But mostly they feature the couple, with Wegrzynski appearing in almost every film. Wegrzynski, who comes from an art school background, is the one who takes care of the entire production process from concept to packaging.

Its manifesto reads:

VIII. IF does not promote, privilege or identify with any sole ideology or trend-based sexuality. Categorisation is autonomic only to viewers individual practices. IF is act of resistance against current divisions in porn regarding gender, sexuality and genre biases. It considers such division as both archaic and tendentious. IF works only with and for those people who refuse to assimilate to any traditional categories within contemporary porn.

Inside Flesh was born out of resistance to such norms, as well as the need to evolve. “IF and SUKA OFF are two very different platforms and the first one starts where the latter cannot reach,” Wegrzynski said. “The hyper-narrative world where everything is possible starts where the timeline of SUKA OFF stage stories reach their limit.” From its inception, SUKA OFF was about exploring “human carnality in all its biological and physiological aspects.
