Eduardo Batata / YEP (residency)
March 29 - April 10
The skin covers our whole bodies, it covers all bodies, it covers all marginalized bodies.
To fictionalize our skin is to fictionalize our past. To decide about the past so the future can be changed, as a cure, a revisitation.
Spontaneous Human Combustion (SHC) is a concept related to reported cases of the combustion of a living (or recently deceased) human body without an apparent external source of ignition.
SCH is a fiction about our skin, about its regenerative capabilities, about the marks we want to keep or remove, about the possibility of a spontaneous combustion.
I propose a sensorial skin, genital-skin, erogenous-skin, total-skin – as a mechanism of an absolute sensation.
