The paper is my skin, filled with muscles, bones and organs folded on top of each other in a supposedly logical order that has been given to me. In the Bodyshop series, colored pencils, scalpel and scissors are my tools to cut deep under the skin and understand anatomy more precisly. By dissecting, I autopsy my organs piece by piece, chaos is created. This is my material for a new game, the workshop of my body.
My body is a space. Here I negotiate the dissolution of boundaries, norms and binary of a body that wants to live by its own rules. In the process I cut the tissue and dissect myself to many unique parts. With deep cuts, I simultaneously detach the bond to my earlier self. This separation is existentially important to me, it relieves me of dependencies and urges. When I cut, I feel less pain, more it is a fascination of complex connections in my physical body and the possibility to stretch and modify them. My body floats and I feel a new kind of love for myself. Drawn intestines, spine or heart do not ignore their functions, but the hierarchical order. I place them next to each other on a metaphysical level and intertwine them anew. This composition becomes a new manual of diversity in which completely fluid bodies live and love.
