immersive installation with durational performance,
Leading you down
dark corridors and dimly lit rooms, this body consumes, subjects, digests. Its
leathery skin is stitched together by hand at distorted and
faulty angles subjecting you to its bodily presence
installation encompasses a dark labyrinth of architectural unease. Hidden among
this overwhelming body, you might stumble onto other presences. Durational
performance, smell, sensory and bodily experience are important elements of
this installation and centre on the personal narrative of the visitor. Exploring
the unsettling and vibrant qualities of wallpaper as medium and bodily agent in
an interactive work.
Monochromatic texture, ominous
patterns and the architectural uncanny merge with a fascination for the
physicality and agency of the objects surrounding us in an embodied experience.
The wallpaper is approached as a body, a dynamic and complex organism with an
incomprehensible agency. Wallpaper is a
dissembler, a medium that openly misleads by transforming and reconstructing
spaces. This leathery skin hides the bones and skeletal of the room under a
layer of deceptive beauty.
