Taxon

 

A “taxon” is a designation for a group of specific organisms that have common specifications. A new taxon evaluates whether or not it is an advantage to learn to live with a new body or to get rid of it. Its mutating body, which is just learning to walk, does not know its possibilities. We follow the process of transformation, as if the body transforms like an open source code. The new creature is locked within the limits of its development and slowly subdues the prostheses that “nature” has given it. For now, it can only touch the verticality

Taxon was originally done for exhibition Movere in GAMU Gallery in 2016 and few years later developed again for various locations and with more performers, named as series Taxon One, Taxon Two, Taxon Three…etc
