INSIDE/OUTSIDE

Performance work INSIDE/OUTSIDE

 

A work that research the inner and outer in relation to ourselves, our surroundings and the society.

It raises the question of how to balance and manage the inner and outer to create a sustainable way of being and relating to ones environment.

 

 

Our biggest organ, Skin, is simultaneously communicating with the inside and the outside. It sends signals to our nervous system about our surroundings and potential threats. Skin is an important element of the work and is used as a form of installation as an extension of the body. It acts as a partner, support, resistance and it also bridges to the outside and interaction with other.
