In Bubble I spend a night in the sterile environment of a luxury hotel. The interior is glossy, neutral colours, tasteful décor, an expensive non-place designed for a pleasant experience. The work questions who has a right to leisure. It questions how this body exists in such a space, and how in this space it exists differently to other or othered bodies, such as how I may have been perceived before I embarked on my physically transformative project, it could be viewed as an explicit method for survival, also.

Artor Jesus Inkerö (b.1989) is a Helsinki and Amsterdam-based artist working in moving image and photography. Inkerö's ongoing 'holistic bodily project' attempts to transform their image into the most generic version of contemporary masculinity. Through the appropriation of masculine-coded attributes Inkerö's practice engages with questions of control, power, safety and privilege. Currently attending the Rijksakademie, they previously graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki. Their work has been presented at New Museum, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, SALTS gallery, Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art.
