Bored to death

Judith Clijsters


A man is stuck in the middle of a crowd. She is surrounded by other people who watch her fight against time, fight choices, fight the rhythm, fight her own critical mind. Who’s fighting? Her body fights. Her body fights against her limiting beliefs. Her body fights for our tiring one-eyed behavior and searches for new and real connections. Who wants to play? Play and risk loosening up our way of living.

Humans are physical beings… where are they going? That is the central question of my new (solo?) work that I am making. In a consumer culture where our minds do the work and enjoy themselves afterwards, our bodies are abandoned and connections are lost.
