Gravity-Eight

 

According to Buddhism there is eight sufferings that mankind must go through. Even in our modern time, we cannot avoid this pain. Gravity eight combines textile- and performance art, to underline the human struggle.

Laying still, for a whole day, I could hear the sounds of passersby. Conversations and footsteps next to my head. –Is she real? Is she moving? Pulled down by the weight of my own possessions, a cocoon of everyday objects. I am real, I am a human… I am suffering.
