- nature morte with five bodies
...There are bodies in the image.
Every body characteristic and unique as a type. The androgynous mulatto, the ageing sex-diva, a porky macho man. One after another they draw the
purple backdrop away and allow us to peep into the machinery and pull-ropes of the image, where rules about sex and age have dissolved to allow them to move in a common space, where there are, as yet, no rules.
Here the cello is turned upside down, and used more as a partner than as an instrument. The Masai warrior is white, men are breast-feeding men. And the accordion, which played earlier, breathes like an enormous, exhausted lung. Everything takes on
a new life.”
Janus Kodal (Politiken, 17th February 2001)
