«Selfie. Noun, informal. A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media.»

What are the drivers of our choices, of our behavior? To what extent are our actions influenced by the gaze of others? And what role does biology play, i.e our “belonging to the animal world”, in our daily lives, in our group-based lives? How much is all this related to the concept of (self) reproduction? SELFIE // STICK is a diptych that stages the fractures and connections between the self and the other, between nature and culture, between male and female (and all the infinite middle ground between) through the bodies and images of two figures, amplified by live technologies.
