Hard and solid coating that protects some animal bodies like turtles, crustaceans and other arachnids.
Thereby isolating anyone outside contacts, protect them.
I would like to propose, through creation, a poetic translation of a world that upset me, putting my emotions in shells, membranes, walls - physiological, metaphysical, artificial, wraps, waterproof and protective...
I watch to people dreaming about sealing, allergic to the slightest inside and outside aggression, that protect themselves as best as they can, about real or imagined dangers.
In the shelter of a shell which becomes a double skin - protective shell, but also confinement's bubble.
Soaked with loneliness, shaken by fear, they drag their shell along like a buoy.
A shell like a sarcophagus, which they can untangle from only after a grueling fight, at the price of an assumed, unalterable, sublimated skinning.
