The installation focuses on gender transition through transdermal self-medication. The piece explores the rituality of transitioning – questioning its political dimension, privacy and accessibility. The altar displays found personal objects closely tied to the reality and process of transitioning, inviting the viewer to a moment of public intimacy. You are invited to kneel.

Performative Installation with live ASMR

“We are queer because we refuse to take a fixed form.” (Antke Engel). “The cutest criticism” is a live ASMR performance on the inner critical voice. The costume is entirely handmade, thematizing the process of production: Hand-knitted pieces show how a person felt while knitting. In a relaxed state, the stitches are loose and soft. Being physically tense creates a tight, rigid pattern. When we are daydreaming, small bumps or holes show. A knitted piece thus works like a diary of mental health. The details of the costume also feature nostalgic elements such as glass beads or Fimo, referring to childhood moments within the safer space of play. Costume, body and installation merge into one sculpture.

After the apocalypse, the few species that have survived will start to live in symbiosis with each other to survive, rather than exploitation. From this state of being, a new ritualistic cult will arise. One member of this cult visits our present world, and invites you to a one-on-one ritualistic sequence.
