From September 2017 to April 2019 I lived in Japan. Having experienced firsthand the disadvantages of living in a country where speaking English is not enough for being understood, I started to cultivate an interest in the absurd. An absurdism which led my memories to travel between the real world and a fantasy, between being of a humans’ and not.
The incapacity of communicating with someone else represents not only a focus but also the contour of a conflict between the self and the other. A fight which I translate through dreamlike atmospheres where no one is ever fully human, and no one is ever fully understood.
'Out of the Shell' is the result of that incredible life experience.
