Within an isolated room the natural, domestic and industrial entwine in a shifting sculptural landscape of integrating and disintegrating bodies, spawning demonic entities, fleshly spectres and hybrid forms; enacting the metamorphosis of the human and non-human, the dissolution and mutation of identity and subjectivity, and the primordial emergence of potentially from unformed chaotic ferment. Visceral imagery and electronic sound are conjoined in a disorientating immersion into an apocalyptic hallucinatory world.
