[Entrance from Mill Bay] Folkestone.
I perform in a room surrounded by mirrors.
A space of/for reflections, a space of double and multiple truths.
I have chosen shaving foam as material for the action because of its impermanent status, its superficial application and its connection with masculinity.
I see Truth and Objectivity well in correspondence with male empowerment.
I devised a circuit of tasks and symbolic actions aimed to deconstruct any sense of Truth.
I exercise its limits.
I'm attempting to pierce the veil of empirical facts by opening objective truth with personal interpretation.
I’m moving inside a space called photography. A parallel space that pulls me apart from the actual.
