White Adonis is a video which references James Bidgood’s Pink Narcissus, and its precursors in male erotica, while using as its inspirational myth the scene of Adonis’ death. The video was filmed in a bedroom, while it was being repaired after a serious rainwater leak, and was filmed in ‘super-slow motion’ on a domestic digital camera, giving a low quality digital image with a very high frame rate. Adonis, the foreign, adolescent lover of the goddess Aphrodite, was said to have been gored in the groin by a boar and left to die in a bed of lettuce, a plant which the Greeks called ‘food for corpses’, and which they believed caused impotence.
