HORIZONTAL DANCE, Dur 2"57', 2016

Horizontal dance is a video about dance, movement, body, lust and pumas. The leopard-covered legs transform into an image of a mouth, human body transforms to an animal and back. Human's total alienation from nature and simultaneous role as part of nature is paradoxical. How is the cultural code of animal pattern marking sexiness constructed? Why is it often the not-so-fit human flesh that's covered in animal disguise? How does body movement communicate?
