Two-screens video Installation, 2018 - 2019
Urchins have a fascinating body to which I like 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.
