Lost Heritage at kim? Contemporary Art Center, Riga
With every limb there is detachment. Cut.
Cut-open limbs with silicone arteries stretched through their hollowed shells. Slimy surfaces of never-sweating bodies. Programmed biological efficiency, exact as a mission with military precision. Micro-beginnings of species outside of nature. Human-created-designed-programmed organisms crawl out sterile laboratories.
With every limb there is detachment.
That pink of your prosthetic teeth is most attractive.
