NEREO DROWNING

I can swim like the others

only I have a better memory

than the others. I have not

forgotten my former inability

to swim. But since I have not

forgotten it my ability to swim

is of no avail and I cannot

swim after all.

F. Kafka , Parables and Paradoxes

How does the surrounding, living world mould and modify our bodies and how can we talk about that?

 

Nereo drowning turn the body into a liquid mass of flesh, rolling and unfolding on the floor; an exploration into the materiality of the new bodily perception on a alienated contemporary society. The piece attempt against a social construction exposing certain symptoms of repression, and for turning against itself the mechanisms of alienation it produces. What is his capacity resistance to survive in the middle of a world where he has no place?.
