A + B = X is a journey through the human mind and the healing of one's own body. Half-man/half-woman, the bodies speak a strange language that corresponds to nothing but which means so much. Distortions and impositions, the body as a prison, the body as a living art object.
"My work deals with the body in the present, I deal with the blending of the sexes, not seen as uniformity but as a source of diversity and richness."
Ana Pons Carrera, Gilles Jobin, Nuria de Ulibarri
Franz Treichler and The Young Gods
