In the performance "skinning", two bodies move through the room in one sculpture. Sometimes individual human body parts are emerging from the form… it is „the alive“ itself, which affects as all, down to our deepest sensations.

 

For the sound of this performance we recorded the sound of mud on bare skin…

Placed on a pedestal, I reside like a sculpture, apparently motionless, in a textile shell. The shell is exactly mady for one body position and can only be opened with outside help. Only after a while, through small movements, the viewer realizes that this sculpture is human...

 

The distant view gives way to an emotional sensation...

The abstract form becomes an illustration of pure body sensation, which, due to its facelessness, its depersonalization and vulnerability, makes it almost impossible to stay differentiated from the observed object.
