DO URCHINS ALSO DREAM? 

School of Visual Arts, New York, 2019

DO URCHINS ALSO DREAM? transliterates a dream that Iri had as her mother brought her some urchins to eat one day. She puts them in the fridge to eat later. She did not want to eat them that night and neither the next days. Each day, she started to develop anxiety about that leftover living food in her fridge. Not wanting to face the living or dead urchins in her fridge, she started to have this recurrent dream in which the urchins were trying to escape through the window of a living room leading to an ocean floor, dripping electric blue blood as they would pile up and climb the wall to reach the window.

ARISTOTLE LANTERN

School of visual Arts, 2018-2019

Urchins have a fascinating body to which Iri likes to identify physically and metaphorically. These videos show close-ups of the animal body parts shot through a microscope at the Bio Lab of the School of Visual Arts in New York. They unveil what is not visible to the naked eye: spines that look like male sexual organs and a mouth made of five tongs and five teeth that look like a female sexual organ with a complex mechanism of absorption and castration. The work was exhibited at the SVA summer residency open studios 2018 and 2019.
