„What else is there to heal? I’m not quite sure, but it’s at least and particularly the following: the disease to heal.” (Lyotard)

The video based installation SKIN TONE discloses the relation between sterile-medical bodies and the paranoid feeling of a rambling sick. The skin appears as the potentially replaceable border of identity. The libidinous desire to burst this protective shell, is soaked by a fear of vulnerability. The opportunity of an artificial and programmed layer of skin promises control, submission and recovery of the infested areas. It appears as the answer to the uncanny and finally determines the body to the status of a closed circle system.
