In Fate I project photographs of allergens by Theodore Gray and Nick Mann onto the wall. In a self-directed stage, I use my body to intervene on the screened images. Juxtaposed with their shades, my figure and skin fills them. By altering their color and shape, it performs my ever-changing mental relation with allergy. According to the doctors, allergic reactions to nickel and cobalt will accompany me for the rest of my life. This act of appropriation reinforces in me a state of inner peace and self-acceptance.
