Two young women dream of changing skin. They have a workbench, blocks of dirt and a few tools at their disposal, enabling them to start the experiment metamorphose themselves. Little by little we step into their phantasy an into the living paintings workshop, which is enriched by the universe of visual artist Gretel Weyer. Everything becomes tangible and an excuse to touch the longing for change, the fear of the unknown, the awe of what shows up, so many emotions and conditions to experience in this duo’s complicity. All the while making up a broken, imperfect and fragile language. In this game of depicting the modified bodies, the folds, the hidden or invisible places, every body cavity enables us to imagine imaginary, fragmented envelopes with unlikely contours. Does metamorphosis transform us into someone else or does it turn into what we ought to be?
