Mäntel (damit die Welt nicht so schnell kommt), 2018, five coats, chain, »What do I feel when I feel your pain?«, MOM art space, Hamburg

Photography: Robert Schlossnickel 

 

English translation of the title: Coats (so that the world doesn’t enter so fast)

 

This piece – consisting of 5 coats forming one bodiless body – is based on a quote: “Sometimes I have the physical need to wear 5 coats on top of each other to prevent the world from coming so fast.” This sentence surfaced during an interview that I conducted in the context of my insistent research on the connection between empathy, body, and the perception of having (no) borders.
