Metamorphosis – Performance – Video 2015
»Metamorphosis, from Latin meta (change) and morphosis (form), is a powerful symbol of transformation, reflecting the psyche’s encounter with its development: with radical changes in form, function, character and state of being.«
(Ami Ronnberg, “Metamorphose”,Das Buch der Symbole, p. 774, TASCHEN)
This work is embedded in a harsh landscape and surrounded by
flowing water as an encompassing symbol for both the flow of time and
energy and the hardness of being.
It shows the progressive liberation from an existence marked by constraints.
At the end of this complex process, the self-assured representation of one’s own uncovered body stands as the highest and purest form of being in the world.
This performance is presented through photography and video.
