Body-House

“The body and me are not the same.
The body is the house in which I live in.
I don’t own this house and this house is not me, though its my house.
Sometimes I feel my body as a home and sometimes it can be an unfamiliar property.

Inside this body-house there are many rooms and corridors, it is a one of a kind structure where I wonder inside.
I live under my skin.
My skin is my protector, the gate keeper off my house and me.
Sometimes I come through the walls of my skin to feel, I even open small cracks to the outside, I don’t like exposing too much cause then I get injured.”

Body-house* gaat op een fysieke en conceptuele manier een dialoog aan met de analogie waarmee de Duitse professor Dr. Claudia Benthien het lichaam beschouwt als een huis dat zowel solide en omhullend als verhullend is. Ze benadert de huid als grens tussen intimiteit en de buitenwereld - als de deuren en ramen waarmee bemiddeld wordt tussen privédomein van het individu en zijn of haar omgeving.

*opgedragen aan Tova en Hendrik, met liefde
