“A duet where One is afraid, much, and One is excited, much. Representing the constant flow from nowhere to nowhere, the dissolving of boundaries and/or rules, the free movement of information not yet formed where all relationships are in motion with/without. Chaos appears as a leitmotiv /concept  to explore and deal with unconscious depths, vibrations, pure energy, infinite speeds, intensities, sensations, madness, unpredictability, plurality, endless possibilities, open field, letting go of ego and of preconceived patterns or expectations. Chaos breeding counter forces, tensions, conflicts, despairs, feeding itself in the weakest residues. A duet where One is afraid, much, and One is excited, much. And so are both.” JvMT


GLOBAL WAR{ming}, by Natalia Wilk
“Preparing for a flood. Huge cleansing wave of destruction. New conditions of liquide state of matter to live in imaginary Atlantis of own liquid body. ‘Become water my friend’. Looking forward for Global WAR{ming} results. With primordial waters of no ECO, no LOGO, no RIVER, no DAM, no KITCHEN, no LABEL, no PROBLEM… Norm-core. Aqua-core. Becoming formless. Stay against, stay within, hold back, step forward, go around. Adapt. Water doesn’t have a statement.”
