Performers lathered with moist clay endure the drying process of the organic material in stillness and become living sculptures in the exhibition space. They are reminiscent of bodies on the margins of society or a cocoon in the process of metamorphosis. They are connected by acoustic signals, atmospheric impressions, and concrete actions performed by the artist. As a result the individual figures appear to act as one communal organism: they break their immobility through furtive movements and surprising interactions. With humus Anne Rochat challenges us to consider the existence of the individual and its social relationships and how communities can grow from diverse identities.
