Body Language is a collaboration between Amela Parcic and Ekaterina
Aksenova. Using a combination of sculpture and video projection, we
investigate the architecture of the body and how it occupies space.
Becoming more and more transient, people are no longer tied to any
particular place in the world. Our body is the most permanent home we
 have, our identities are no longer fixed to a particular place.
Language then becomes the main distinguishing part of our identity. In
sculpture, the process of recreating an object in another material
often transforms its physicality and the end result is never quite the
same as the original. As it does in the translation of a sentence from
one language to another, the loss and gain of information that occurs
in the process of reproduction is the point of departure for this
