Maya Oliva: Mostruosa

“A slippage between human, animal and organic matter. Shapeshifting into a mutating organism in constant becoming •○• A nomadic being, sprouting roots towards new ecosystems, seeking to adapt by adjusting its form ~ becoming monstrous.”

35mm film photography of dancer and choreographer Maya Oliva’s performance ‘Mostruosa’. The pictures were taken on two Kodak films, one of which was processed in sea water and foliage collected on the site of the performance. The effects; leakage of colours, burns and a destroyed frame on the film reflect the performance’s mutative nature.
