REVOLUTION // SHELTER, CEMETERY

As an artist who is obsessed with the imagination of utopian and dystopian futures, I wish to start from the stage of escaping from the real world, with a reinforced sense of our physical bodies .

My current work focuses on how harmful particles can appear as invisible, but break through our immune system and affect our whole body. I wish to show the dilemma between control and lack of control through body movement, performance and costumes that could define the characters for an imaginary future .

This project responds to my manifesto of creating an imaginative utopian/dystopian future. Due to the impact of the pandemic, the world I’ve been living in changed beyond recognition. Focusing on the human form, the story indicates two protagonists struggling and trying to adapt/mutate in order to live in an extreme underground environment.

I wish to build up a subtle connection between the audience and my work and make them question: "What happened?" "What will happen next?"

This work sits between fashion performance, costume design for theatre and film and fashion editorial.
