I want to live in my freezer, with my memory and some of its remaining. I try to collect it, pack it, mummify it, but it
imposes itself in the unsuitable time, digging its roots in a new gap.
The performance tackles the trilogy of body-memory object with respect to effect and effectiveness, rejection and attraction, leading to the creation of a new trilogy: body-mind-new body, a trilogy that highlights its own inherent rejection and neutrality.
