'The Survival Of The Fittest' is questioning the interpretations of this Darwinian theory that has shaped our modern world: that the strongest has the right to dominate or destroy the weaker ones. Competition is still encouraged and winners praised, anywhere from talent shows to the utopian concept of 'continuous growth' most countries still base their wellbeing on.
How far do we want to push ourselves? How far do we want to push each other - and the earth? In 'Survival Of The Fittest' one woman balances between the images of what it means to be 'fit', superior and in control - as well as falling out of the grace into the animalistic, the chaotic and the vulnerable.
