Recently at Galerie Kunstbuero, Vienna: Anna-Sophie Berger & Lucia Elena Prusa

An irritated state. She talks faster and moves her hands around more often than normal.
Crash! Anna heard the din from across the hall. She closed her eyes and
concentrated on her breathing.
…fantastical being of a menacing nature, more akin to say, a fantom.

Your skin is so tight you can’t shut your eyes without opening your mouth.

OUR BODY ROUTINE

Toileting and toilet hygiene
Dressing
Swallowing/eating
Feeding
Functional mobility/transfers
Personal device care

Personal hygiene and grooming
Sexual activity

I fantasize about having scarlet fever, because a diagnose always soothes me. I wonder if I am keeping the virus because it attaches me to home?

To refresh an aching head:
Flour, 1; incense, 1; wood of wa, 1; waneb plant, 1; mint, 1; horn of a stag, 1;
sycamore seeds, 1; mason‘s plaster, 1; seeds of zart, 1; water, 1; mash, apply to
the head.
Freshly produced ambergris has a marine, faecal odour. However, as it ages, it
acquires a sweet, earthy scent.

Then Lucia is drifting away from knowledge.

It is characteristic of all kinds of handicraft that we learn to master them through
someone showing us what to do and then imitating them. This applies to all
skills that are not mediated through language,
from riding a bicycle to cooking. Then, as we gradually gain in skill, we learn a
set of rules that is applicable to that specific handicraft. This set of rules is a
concentrate of experiences accumulated over a
long period of time. Once it has been mastered, the individual is able to gain the
freedom to deviate from it in a particular direction.
(Gertrud Sandqvist, On Intuition)

Common Juniper tree (Juniperis phonecia; Juniperus drupacea)
digestive, soothes chest pains, soothes stomach cramps.
Cubeb pepper (Piper cubeba; Piperaceae)
urinary tract infections, larynx and throat infections, gum ulcers and infections,
soothes headaches.
Poppy (papaver somniferum)
relieves insomnia, relieves headaches, anaesthetic, soothes respiratory
problems, deadens pain.

„I put my fist through the wall for no good reason, gotta be the fantods.“
