'The Excess Island' is a work in progress presented in a book as well as in an exhibition format. Borrowing a language employed by pornography and re-framing it within the context of an island, Benedetta Panisson invents new ways to naturalise a series of 'unconventional' sexual expressions.

Treating the sea as a metaphor, the artist assigns to her images aesthetics of sexuality by expanding our point of view through amplified landscapes and broaden horizons. From literature to politics the island has often been linked to a utopian idea that calls upon a self – exploration and a reinvention at the same time.

While contemplating 'The Excess Island' the viewers are triggered towards the prohibited that finds its way to their inner selves.
