Next of Skin (2018) is a continuation of the work‚ My Body Is The Forest, The Forest Is My Body (2017). It conceptualizes the relationship between the human body and the body of nature by treating them as one organism. Seeking to remove the borders and searching for a sensitive, intimate and direct contact embraced in a reciprocate rhythm.
In this video, I want to become a forest, to return my body to the natural environment, where it belongs. I lie down and gradually envelop myself with whatever organic matter the body encounters on its way. I feel that, through this very physical and intimate experience of giving the body into the environment, I can perceive it from a closer and purer perspective.
It is an ongoing project I'm searching for new forms of connections with the environment using my own body and opening it to various textural intimacies.
