Life seeks its body incessantly. And it delivers us to the turbulence of the bonds and interweavings that articulate matter: the making of the world.
The image of a corporeity that takes on strength and expressive power through vibratory affects and activities is positioned as the radiating core of the work.

VIBRANT BODIES, like a small transient tribe, aggregates and disperses, modelling intrinsic capacities of compromising stability and generating a sense of deterritorialisation that pervades the bodies and consigns them to an ever-born state.

Impregnated with creaturely emergencies, the choreography unfolds as a field of intensities, tensions and filaments that prefer lines, spirals, folds and interstices to regular frames. The cartography of an unstable world, in which the centrality of the body is distorted by the material flow of anatomical and environmental events. Rebirth in the marginality of space or prosthesis in its vertiginous centre. In the continuous attempt to rise from a quadrupedal gait or drawing vaults of improbable birds.

Who knows whether they will be roots, legs or wings, stretched between form and decay, between unpredictability and expectation. The condition of accomplished verticality expands into an inclination. A median position that is an act of vulnerability but also of transformation. Solitary and gnarled or united, and prismatic, the vibrant bodies stand poised, between things, revealing a condition that is never fully complete, exuding vulnerability but also transformation.
Always, possible, new life.
