(G)loves for (G)ants
Gloves to protect and to control against cold or heat, damaged by fiction, abrasion and chemicals, from what a bare hand should not touch
are the only tool to explore the future bodies, to challenge the danger, the alien unknown words. Symbolizing the borders with the other. Balancing the fears/tears with the irresistible need to discover. This ovni-project is kidding/killing the prophecy of a society fascinated and driven by the collection of this intri-(g)ant neo skin. A porous cocktail of dystopia and utopia divided into 26 gangs, each of them led by a capital letter.
to protect and to control: two raw rivers that meet in the junction of an encrypted wor(l)d. An invitation into an escaped capsule to explore the cabinet de curiosité, and be exposed to their growing hands.
against cold or heat,
(G)loves for (G)ants is using the body as a remote territory. Still developing the carcass, regarding to individual abilities and the needs of the collective, through an hybridization with (G)loves. Building a babel bank of gestures to format the future? body.
damaged by fiction, abrasion and chemicals,
the borders between the one & the other, fabrication & friction, numeric algorithms & transformed chimeras. This catalytic brain poison is re-confronting the current world, from a time machine distance. As poetical and political notions merge into alternative futures, new possibilities arise in the mind, to imagine and re-build with a smile.
from what a bare hand should not touch
This is the Hand.
A (G)love for your hands, A (G)ant for your skin. A (G)ang for your life
