Navigating through bodily visions, this work aims to explore the malleability of tenderness and violence as the consuming of flesh. Named Relics to refer to the cannibalistic fetishisation of idolised bodies, the work plays with the indistinguishableness and formlessness of sensual figures. The photographs coming from a lover's bed or from a butcher's cold room work together to produce a harmony of bodies existing through their flesh as a common fabric of perception. Viewers are invited to consider the room as an antechamber, a space that cultivates the in between - of passage: the chain curtain, usually found at the entrance of the butchers, announces a curated display of backlit screens of flesh and preservation. A sound piece guides the audience through the obscure space, a heartbeat paired with the sound of breaking bones, the tapping of the keyboard, the voice.
