#toohuman is part of the #IORESTOACASA series, two stories which were drawn while stranded in a foreign country, due to the closing of the borders, in confinement, measures taken globally to stop the spread of the coronavirus since March 2020.
The story before the story or how did the body of H.I.I.T. decided to go on this never-ending ‘identity training’.
Drawn in confinement, while working with constraints for my upcoming solo creation, H.I.I.T. | High-Intensity Identity Training.
In order to regain agency.
Agency of space.
Of the body.
#TOOHUMANwhat does human feel like?
"We are experiencing a moment of crisis. A moment of illusion, where time seems to stand still. But it can also be a time of revelation: how self-consuming can it be, aiming for the future, thinking there is time, planning ahead. Don't get me wrong, it can be also a good thing, as long as we don't let the present pass us by, as long as we don't miss out on opportunities that can't be measured with results. A chance to touch, to express emotions, to be truthful, respectful, responsible to oneself and to others. A chance to gain agency of oneself, not only by showing strength, but also vulnerability and care, away from individual arrogance.
I need to re-learn in distance now, how it feels to be human. And if this is too big of an aspiration, how it feels to be just...me".
