PetroPorn is a video essay about an imaginary dispersed between oil and porn. Subliminal connections of suction and tireless and insensitive perforations where the hidden is revealed without mystery.
The video is based on a residence in Tierra del Fuego, specifically in Cerro Sombrero, an oil town, place of origin and decadence of black gold in Chile, where the pampas and ENAP (national oil company) reign. After a compilation of oil identities and imaginaries from the perspective of the state, the company and the community, the artists decide to discard official, hackneyed and hackneyed signifiers and to mesh the logics of oil with porn, of the land and the body.
