How surprising that you are you

Role play of some psychological instances of love, in which Desire, Jouissance and the Unconscious, next to others, live and get together in flats of their close friends. The protagonists find their environment to be disconcerting, causing certain behaviors. Can love become a form of personal resistance for them, to counter a predominant reactionary climate suspicious of everything unknown? – In the installation raised carpet strips on the undersides introduce the roles in the drama of love. In the front part of the room each character retains its own strip; in the rear, they merge to form a unified floor and interact in the video projection.
