The pain is just a fragment of me

Artist’s statement :

When the body experiences recurring trauma and pain. When we no longer remember our body without the pain. When the pain becomes the daily routine. The persistence of pain places the body and mind in a state of resistance and intolerance. An intolerance towards noises, lights and presences. Even the presence of our own body is unbearable, insurmountable. The memory of pain persists even though the area of illness is healed. This memory that persists in the body, that comes from the mind, becomes a part of us. The pain is not unknown to the body but is a part of it. This installation is a confrontation of the human body with pain.
