Linn Meyers

Two Works


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.

Artist Linn Meyers normally creates work characterized by a cumulative sequence of marks, meditatively applied. Here, in a darkened room, natural and artificial light is introduced and animates Two Works. The light passes through plain and colored gauze, creating three-dimensional, illusionistic works which reveal a painterly sensibility.
