Hearts are organic reaction spaces surrounded by a muscle. Well-rooted monuments inside us. They embrace and are embraced. Hearts are the experience of repetitive rebellion and letting go. A 25-fold enlargement of Li Kemme’s heart made of 14 kilos of truck tarpaulin and a 450-watt fan is placed at the feet of the audience.
