When you feel that your body is a rag doll and you want to turn your pear into a
sweet tight peach, you exchange in the mechanical ballet.

When the object of representation is removed, what was once on the periphery of
our vision is relocated. Codes of representation are unearthed and re-used as
blueprints for ecstatic productions. Choreographed fragments from disparate pop-
cultural sources create parallel myths that border on parody.

The vessel itself is usually a failed DIY dream in which plywood, foam and faux
leather play an essential role.

Movements contained on screen are extended to the spectator; repeating but
accumulating at the same time.

Whatever perversions were contained within are now necessary tools for exchange.

‘Schwarzenegger’s acting style is based on the liberation of his body rather than
his face as the main vehicle of expression.’

rich environment.’
