While transforming and even fusioning with the coal, I perceive its darkness and amorphousness as materialization of processed memories and emotions.
In the history of energy production charcoal, and later mineral coal are the ancestors of crude oil; in similar way I make a reference to the different generations of ancestry in my own family.
This performance is part of a series of artistic research called "s./t. series". This title refers to my inability to express verbally the motives that drive me to chew, press or pulverise charcoal, or those that provoke the impulse to bury my head or to lie on coal.
