...We move forward onto the land that swallows up ... we sink into the darkness that hides...  we are knotted to chains of flesh... we are freed in a chorus of breaths: the small underground prison becomes a guardian temple of bodies and breaths... body fragments... broken bodies... over which spreads the profound sense of human longing for wholeness; mute bodies make their listlessness of being absent filter through the stone... and their "not-being" makes itself present... it hangs over... looming... bending... An autopsy postponed... interrupted... laid out... the audience's gaze rests on it, thought sinks, oblique, in order to flow between the parallels... bodies dismembered and rejoined in Caravaggio-like compositions, melancholic, disturbing, suggesting a world without head or tail, where every fragment has its own place but nothing finds its own... and the silence moans... and the silence breathes...
