Tactile experiences — an essential part of everyday human life — can have powerful emotional charges attached to them, thus becoming troublesome and traumatic in our memory. The expression of our traumatic encounters, fears and weaknesses could be expressed through touch in a way no other sense could present, reaching our self at deeper levels than the observable. The installation might be called a psychological experiment where the fragmented body as sculpture and the body of the viewer are playing the leading roles. The shared tactile exploration of the material and form suggests the mirroring and recognition of the represented reality on our self-consciousness.
