The multimedia installation I’LL KEEP YOU WARM AND SAFE IN MY PEOPLE ZOO addresses the instability and ephemerality of the human body as well as the alienation from physicality in today’s digital society. It does so by disassembling the body, “dollifying" it and enhancing the tension between the “real” and the virtual. Internet identities became essential parts of our personas. Our bodies exist simultaneously in multiple realities as unstable, fragmented, ambiguous entities. We are getting de- and reconstructed, multiplied without limits, we can be on- or offline, active, disabled, lost or banned. The unity of the physical self provided by the “real world” is getting substituted by various and often chaotic representations of itself.
