A film in two parts. Part 1: a woman pulls her intestine out of her mouth and lets it fall in a soft pile at her feet. Then she knits the intestine using only her arms. Part 2: she stands on the edge of a pool and makes herself dive again and again.
‘I bring out into the open all the things I have taken in that are not mine and thereby make room for something new. I make an external order out of an internal tangle.’ – J.P.
”K’. is concerned with facing up to fears, exerting control and gaining strength. Its balanced structure and serene pacing reflect the artist’s ultimate imposition of internal order’. –Alexandra Sage.
