Cheating Discipline and Other Artistic Affairs

They let words meet their body. The flesh of language moulds its porous form from inside.Words shape their substance into a specific body; a fictitious reality of change. This body; time poured; and then that body. They shift, and the space shifts too; together they leak into a new situation, another fiction: realities redrawn as they move through them.

Cheating Discipline and Other Artistic Affairs is a joint journey through weak fictions. Slowly, different temporalities and proximities develop – subtle realities embedded in layers of darkness. Moving through social, imaginary, linguistic and sensorial bodies without faithful continuation, the piece creates manifold affairs. Adulterous contracts, seductive leakings and intimate ways of spending time together comes to exists within, but in deception of, disciplinary order. Cheating Discipline and Other Artistic Affairs is in one way a porous body in itself, continuously leaking from its given form and changing, again and again.
