What if there is a version of yourself that lives, desires and performs beyond: the body as something legible, he norm of the nuclear family, the idea of the pair as the ultimate team.

The publication of "Are you awake?" comes after an exhibition of the same name in cooperation with Luka Lenzin, who created a soundtrack for it. Due to the pandemic, this was initially realized online with the kind support of the Hamburgische Kulturstiftung in july 2021 and presented by the Frappant Galerie, Hamburg and Snail Eye Festival, Leipzig. Tim Huys built the VR - room.
Finally, in January 2022 it could also be presented offline at Frappant Galerie.

Luka Lenzin also produced a tape related to the exhibition which - digital or analog - is available on bandcamp.
