SK!N (2016)


SK!N is the boundary of our bodies. It is the membrane that helps us distinguish what is us from what is not us. I t is the un-crossable border between our bodies and the other’s alien body. Perhaps ironically then, in the moment of contact between two bodies, when we attempt to go beyond our borders we are affronted by a stranger affirmation of our own identity.

SK!N is about migration and how, when and why we are allowed to freely cross borders whilst others have their movements restricted. It is about the lengths that people go to in order to survive or better their lives. It is about the dehumanizing trade of people: it’s winners and losers. It is about how we, the privileged, actively and passively, consciously and subconsciously, benefit from and then distance ourselves from the plight of others.

With this work, we try to bring the audience into contact with the other so that they better confront themselves. This has been our process as much as we hope it is the audiences’. We do this in order for us to better understand what we share and what we don’t share, and ultimately whether those differences are justified.
