Fly like a worm, sing like a snail – however they left, with the rattling sound of the bones breaking down
Fly like a worm, sing like a snail – however they left, with the rattling sound of the bones breaking down is a multimedia performance, initially inspired by a “body art” work from Carolee Schneemann – Interior Scroll (1975).
It takes place through an enactment of the artist’s body and words, whether it be in a “public” setting or in the relative privacy of the studio, or in a digital space, that is then documented such that it can be experienced subsequently through photography, film, video, and / or text.
Life is consisted by stream of words, which can be traced, untraced, deformed / reformed. Then there are words, which are like one of a million particles which have the possibility of being fertilized into a sentence, a story, back into life.
Living in various virtual worlds, in different forms of life, different forms of existence,
This work is to celebrate an infinite consciousness directed at the unknown and an exploration into intimacy.
