Life is a dance, and this dance is the freedom of movement, the positives and negatives we experience individually. These positive and negative experiences depend on the decision you make in how you chose to handle the dance.
The images in my work show two people in a Life Dance, one has been tested and the other, a field worker, carries a bag with results. They revolve around one another, connected by the dance and, as HIV can be contracted between people whatever their sexual orientation, I have depicted them as androgynous individuals.
The technique of lines, and the figures coming out of boxes parallels the matrix of life. Paul Klee once described drawing as “Taking a line for a walk” My line proceeds through time, and echoes the dance, a dance which happens in real time to real individuals caught in the world of HIV. But unlike Bergman, at the end of The Seventh Seal, the dance is not macabre; there is hope in my figures.
