Lakhrissi has developed Spiraling (2021), a new film co-produced in collaboration with the Shedhalle Zurich. Inspired by Félix González-Torres’s iconic work “Untitled” (Go-Go Dancing Platform) from 1991 and filmed in a gallery of the Haus der Kunst, Spiraling counters the building’s authoritarian architecture with the powerful metaphor of the spiral. The gyrating movements of dancer Mila Furie, a queer rights activist and night performer, overlap with Lakhrissi’s voice poetically recounting a coming-of-age story. The film reads like a seduction that uses poetry, eroticism, and pop culture to invert the prevailing controlling gaze and power relations. (Haus der Kunst, Echoes
