The future and the past are of the same fabric. We carry what was – and therefore what will be – in us, it has inscribed itself into our organs and must therefore be legible, must make possible the unthinkable, that is: to understand a person, a body. Taking ancient sacrificial rituals and hieromancy as a starting point, adorned with a lamb’s heart and wrapped in fatty tissue, Claudia Bosse infers the infinite from the infinitesimal, cosmic contexts from organic textures, the outermost layer of our possibilities from the narrowest core of the body in her solo ORACLE and SACRIFICE oder die evakuierung der gegenwart (“or the evacuation of the present”).
