Edward Eberle



This play is a reflection on the (im)possibility of accepting diversity and the other. The fragmented body of the neoplasm—the fruit of unstable conditions—overcomes barriers, loves and denies itself and others, wanders around, forgetting its profession. It frequently and with pleasure divides, goes through dangerous palpation, questions the possibility of contact with the experience of the other. Poorly brought up but very successful, it invites us to a trans-species transition.

Edward Eberle is a ceramist and painter. The black room is a found object, left over from an earlier installation. A simple drawing of the space, dashed off in his studio, indicates a subtle, near architectural program playing with dimension, value and volume, which are minimally realized here. An imperfect space becomes strangely idealized.
