No Body

The video-triptych titled No Body is based on a monologue, in which a woman registers the various stages of her gradual disappearance. The text describes the disturbing sensations connected with a simultaneously exposed, manipulated and dissolving body, will and identity. The text is combined with quietly rotating flower arrangements bathing in an intense red light. As the arrangements rotate they may be observed from all angles, revealing how balance changes into unbalance and grace into clumsiness. The work reflects on the defencelessness and vulnerability of a person in a process of losing themself, unable to keep their body and name from slipping away.
