The expo ILVSX!? illuminated a contemporary vision on sexuality through the work of visual artists. The confrontation with this existential theme differs for everyone. Although people always try to unravel sexuality, certain aspects will remain elusive. The title of the exhibition: I love sex!?, conceived as an initial word, alludes to the inability of human to capture sexuality in its totality. The exclamation mark and the question mark refer respectively to the pleasure and inconveniences that sexuality entails. The exhibited artworks of eight (inter)national artists approached sexuality from different angles: sensuality, eroticism, frustration, virginity, pornography, digital media, gender, voyeurism, exhibitionism…
