Of course - you’re still wearing your skin. But didn’t you drop your own skin somewhere else long ago, aren’t you walking around in one that doesn’t belong to you? Because everything, that exists, needs a border, a barrier - a skin.

Artist list

Mari Iwamoto, Zhipeng Wang
When we first came into this world, it was maybe an almost invisibly thin skin, that held us apart from the world. The first detachment happened so softly and naturally so that everything on the other side looked harmless and wonderful. But gradually it hardened this delicate first wall, which was separation and connection at the same time. Consciously or not, by choice or against your will, someday we all took this first skin off, in order to inhabit an artificial housing.

Because everything, that exists for itself, needs a wall, a closure – a house.

Behind the wall, we are almost fluid. Our souls have taken the form of the element, that carries and holds us captive. We sometimes look out the window, which has now become
our entire world. But there is something that won't become world, that can never become world.

Because everything, that wants to exist for itself, needs an opening, a heart, – an emptiness.
