Under My Skin: 2014 - 2016

HD video, color and black & white, stereo, 07:35 mins, loop

In "Beyond the Pleasure Principle" Freud describes humans as struggling between two drives: the life drive or "Libido", is related to hunger, self-preservation, sexual desire and creativity; and the death drive or "Mortido", which brings aggression, compulsion, destruction and the desire towards a state of non-existence. These drives define one another by opposition, eating preserves life but destrouys that which is eaten.

"Under My Skin" is a triptych video and photo series that explores these concepts through certain physiological and psychological states within the realm of erotic activities. Shifting from the surface towards the interior, "Under My Skin" is at times gentle and seductive, at others visceral and menacing, creating a landscape in which bodies are limitless erogenous spaces.
