Los Penetrados comprises of a series of black-and-white photographs and a video, all which portray multiple couples (black and white, homosexual and heterosexual) partaking in anal penetration. Despite it’s vivid sexual content, the rigid formality depicted in the photographs contrast with the bodily curves of the copulating pairs, negating any eroticism that may have otherwise arisen.
Sierra explains his work as a reaction to immigration and racial issues: “The traditional paranoia of white people towards black people or of Europeans towards Africans is linked to a strong phobia. We thinks that sooner or later we will have to pay for our past and present greedy misdeeds. But this white paranoia is also related to the size of the dick or to the fear of a sexuality that demeans us… Behaviours of racial identity are very animal because we are animals.”
