„What if we would one day open our eyes and be someone or something else - looking different, like a lizard or a snake, ugly or stunning beautiful? Would the people we know change, too? Would they still support us? Or would they react strangely, leave us alone, notwithstanding we are still the same ? „Metamorphosis“ deals with the optical aspects which are so important these days as beauty, power, youth. Do we still have the right values ?
I used different wooden pieces, positioned in a way that they look like sheds - a pangolin or a snake? A metaphor for a transformation: the person we can be and we want to be.“ - Alexandra Huelbach
