Details:

“After the living man the dead body is nothing at all; similarly nothing tangible or objective brings on our feeling of nausea; what we experience is a kind of void, a sinking sensation.”

--- Georges Bataille, Eroticism


Resurface is a work that documents the fragmentation of death anxiety, traumatic memories, pain, love marks, bruises, inscription and transforms them to be pleasurable. Resurface is about the experience of physicalization of the intangible memories and allows them to re-surface as visible marks, be it temporary or permanent. Resurface in order to heal. Through the intense closeness of the visual and distanced memories of the voice, the erotic oscillates.
