Insular Bodies ist ein Spiel mit Materialitäten. Was passiert, wenn wir Menschliches und Biologisches, Fleisch und Stein, Wind, Wasser und Haare horizontalisieren? „Insular Bodies“ lenkt unsere Aufmerksamkeit auf die verrückten Verstrickungen zwischen Menschlichem und Nicht-Menschlichem, auf Lebendiges und Nicht-Lebendiges und
entwickelt poetische Bilder einer Ökologie, die keine Hierarchien zeigt, sondern sich utopischen Szenarien des Einklangs nähert.
