I draw a line between my brain my spirit my sacred consciousness
And it breaks whenever it reaches the inside of my skin
As an attempt to desperately make contact with my sister of wax
The inert body, carefully constructed
In collaboration with my glam team
(Special thanks to my glam team)
Her wax skin as a trustworthy witness
Lacking soul but endowed with meaning
More reliable than ordinary mortals
Death to all of them
Driven by visual storytelling, artistic research and pedagogic collaboration, I aim to unearth frictions between compounds of reality and fiction, representation and misrepresentation, and to tap into the dormant spaces of critical and whimsical play nestled inside others. By means of performative research, I sketch out a realm that ranges from provocative tropes within pop culture to history formation. Through quick-witted storytelling and critique, I create a (hyper)reality show of distorted nonhuman characters that question authenticity and reveal layers of depth in the superficial.
