During this performance, I lay on the banks of a river dressed as a mutant mermaid, brought ashore by the tide of "polluted" dreams: fake fur body, latex tail, red hair with a shell crown and three breasts. Next to me there are small fur fish that meow, the fruit of genetic mutations like me. There is always something monstruous about trying to project an image of ourselves. To the eye of the beholder, when fantasy and reality mingle, mutations occur, schizophrenia sets in and dreams are broken.

Waehrend dieser Performance liege ich als mutierte Meerjungfrau verkleidet an einem Flussufer, gestrandet durch die Stroemung von "schmutzigen" Traeumen: im falschen Pelz, mit Latexschwanz, roten Haaren, einer Muschelkrone und drei Bruesten. Neben mir befinden sich kleine miauende Pelzfische, die wie ich Ergebniss von Genmutationen sind.

Der Versuch, ein Bildnis von uns selbst zu projizieren, hat immer etwas monstroeses. Wenn sich in den Augen der Betrachter Fantasie und Realitaet vermischen, ereignen sich Mutationen, stellt sich Schizophrenie ein und Traeume zerbrechen.
