9783822859063: Exquisite Mayhem: The Spectacular and Erotic World of Wrestling

Professional wrestling is currently one of the most popular forms of entertainment in America. - In the early Seventies, Ehret began to stage and photograph female wrestling scenarios in his studio. This erotic photographic genre has come to be known as 'apartment wrestling'. - Shot on sets with controlled lighting, his photographs have a sense of uncanny drama absent from previous examples of the 'cat fighting' fetish style. - This book is the first to present, to a mass audience, the golden age of pro wrestling and its illegitimate sibling: apartment wrestling. - By bringing together, for the first time, these two separate bodies of Theo Ehret's work, 'Exquisite Mayhem' presents the roots of today's overtly eroticized theatrical world of pro wrestling.

About the Author :

Theo Ehret (1920–2012) was the house photographer at the Olympic Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles from the mid 1960s until the early 1980s. His evocative work captured the enormous wrestling personalities of that era―Muhammad Ali and André the Giant, George Foreman and Roberto Durán, among others―and also the sport’s sub-genre known as “apartment wrestling”.

The artist Mike Kelley (1954–2012) worked with performance, installation, drawing and painting, video, sound, and sculpture. Drawing from historical research, mass cultural sources, psychological theory and Sex to Sexty, his artworks reference both high art and vernacular traditions.

Cameron Jamie, born in 1969, is an American visual artist who has exhibited throughout the U.S. and widely in Europe. His artwork addressing the theme of wrestling has appeared in numerous bodies of work. Jamie is also an expert on the subject of North American professional wrestling and apartment wrestling.

Review :

Compelling, erotic, and, yes, stroke-worthy. -- Bookforum, December 2001

Ehret captures the lost spirit of wrestling's past with 488 pages of violent rage and, believe it or not, beauty. -- Hustler, December 2001

Equal parts stroke fodder and sports history, Exquisite Mayhem celebrates the sexier side of America's favorite form of organized brutality. -- Hustler, December 2001
