born slippy


Spriten Kunsthall

𝗯𝗼𝗿𝗻 𝘀𝗹𝗶𝗽𝗽𝘆 is a site specific, collaborative project taking shape as an immersive installation, a dance performance, a concert.

​​In 𝗯𝗼𝗿𝗻 𝘀𝗹𝗶𝗽𝗽𝘆 we navigate between desire and disgust, and their uncomfortable proximity. We are in a sensorial descent, a downward spiral through steel wires and fleshy feelings. Inner subworlds shape time, creating a nest for larval creatures and sonic ruptures. born slippy is a temporal ecosystem where the interior presses against the exterior. It uses the body’s monstrous contradictions, itchy and unpredictable, as a portal to a fictional world.

The installation expanded over 5 floors and 7 rooms. The audience were guided to the top floor of the building, descended floor by floor until they reached the core of born slippy where a dance performance took place. Throughout the building the installations were accomponied by a musical composition.
