Contrary to the daily use of bleach material, in this work I use it to recompose a text I’ve already written with a pen. Thereby I purify my speech. In my works, which I consider as a possibility for expression, when I push my own limits and those of my body, there emerges a situation in which the contradiction between laying bare and the concealing of the self becomes inevitable.
