The human mind is incapable of absorbing all the reality taken in by the eye. We think we retain and subsequently interpret everything  that we see or hear, but how can we be sure that we are not deceiving ourselves?

Fragments #2 is, metaphorically speaking, a broken mirror of the performance entitled Fragments of Love Images – fragments of fragments that were fragments of reality and of our lives even when they were created. In Fragments #2, we consider the notion of installing a human body like a work of art that, when it is transformed in time, offers us a message. The body interprets the painting, and the painting interprets the body in an infinite back-and-forth.

Love images, which are our main interest, represent a tragic element of our lives. We must not succumb to the temptation to think that love images exist or do not exist because of beauty. They are so much more: a diagnosis of our neurotic existence. ​

The passion of love is delirium.
