According to Julia Kristeva, Chora is a stage in the human psychosexual development where one is closest to the pure materiality of their existence. The work re-imagines Chora as a technological rather than a biological organism, where both organisms live inside each other. Uniting human and artificial materials in the form of flesh, the artist’s body and skin-like material latex, it attempts to bridge boundaries between human and technology matter. In its process the work reveals limitations of pure materiality and enduring needs of both organisms, their dependence on connection and clean air.
