How to direct the look of a spectator on the body itself: Entering the universe of this body, discovering this body, trying to understand it, getting to know it, getting absorbed by this body, making someone‘s own body out of this body.

The own body in all the other bodies. Singular body.


This question, this approach to the body found an additional enriching inspiration through the work of Laurent Goldring/France, his „body portraits“ (video loops of around 30 sec of naked bodies in black and white) and my experiences "as a body" within his work.


The look at the entire body in "other feature", is going to oscillate between a "naked" look and a "contextualised" look:

a decomposed look and a constructed look

an emotional look and a formal look

an instinctive look and an intellectual look


The spectator becomes witness of these transformations.
