Kohei Yoshiyuki: The Park
Kohei Yoshiyuki's photographs of people having sex in a park in Japan in the 1970s are all about voyeurism. The artist has said in The New York Times that the couples in the photos did not know about their voyeurs. However sometimes these voyeurs were not content to just look. What do you think about these photographs?
That the couples did not know about their voyeurs could well be so, it is indeed the classical outset. Likewise Jacques Lacan's voyeur is for a while hiding behind trees watching the couple making love in the park... but soon he will want the couple to discover him, and this is his jouissance. So he will start making noises, maybe moving the tree-he doesn't want to get involved with them in another way than them reacting against him-yell at him, throw stones, call the police... With Kohei Yoshiyuki's the voyeurs seem to go further in their trying to approach the couple, peep from a very close distance, touch the woman... At that point, say... in The New York Times, trouble will happen.[...]
