Date Place



The work has been guided by those dark forces that inherently shape our bodies, accelerating or slowing us down, such as fatigue, lethargy, apathy, restlessness, negligence, despair, looseness.

The body harbors a reserve of dynamite. Lurking under the skin, the destructive forces are existence itself, dissolving identity instead of solidifying it. The body’s capacity to undergo metamorphosis is part of our biology, and we celebrate its ability to change. That change is often seen as something positive, a progression, a step forward. But the capacity for progress comes at a price: it is often counterbalanced by a form of destruction. This does not contradict life - it makes life possible.
