The skin of the chameleon

The body as a metaphor is a source of fear and doubt; it is too much or too little, a machine or an instinctive organ. There is the fear of death and the vulnerability of the body. Questions arise about the privet and public, the sexual and politic, the reality and the unreal.

We look at it as something with its own powers, because it makes us visible when we prefer to be grey or transparent and at the same time it is our only possibility to experience ourselves in the immense space and reality.

The essential experience of being in relation to the own body is the dark and desperate feeling of living in two separate spaces, the body and the non-body; the self.
