"Art Porn Auteur"
It's an interesting moniker and I certainly appreciate the exposure, so only time will tell if the tag line sticks, but i do enjoy fucking with my audience's heads. And I do love mixing the Existential Dread and hard ons.



"Helping to keep the crowd turned on, if unsettled, will be a loop of erotic video art and photography by Portland auteur Andrew Klaus. Described by Byron Beck as “combining the reverence of the Pieta with the irreverence of Piss Christ,” Klaus’ work is often termed “art porn,” the union of existential dread and boners. However, while the films range from “quite graphic” to “overwhelmingly graphic,” they are less about fucking than about fucking with the viewer’s head. “For me, showing sexuality, even explicit sexuality, doesn’t necessitate it being pornography,” Klaus explains. “The line between porn and art is a tough one to draw. [New Queer Cinema filmmaker] Todd Verow said, ‘Porn is where the viewer masturbates, art is where the artist masturbates.’” And not to give away some major narrative points, but by Verow’s definition, several of these films are decidedly art."
