Description: Four TV screens, arranged in a column one over the other,
display different parts of a human body, so that the four screens put
the body together: standing still, with hands let loose beside the hips.
The whole body comprises of four different fragments, each of them recorded
and displayed with a separate video recorder. The body is slowly turning
round. In the beginning it is a dressed male body, which turning round
and round systematically loses parts of its clothes. When the part below
the waist is already undressed it turns out that in stead of the male
genitals under the clothes, pubic hair and shapely female legs appear.
At the same time the two screens above display the torso of a man, dressed
in shirt. The metamorphoses of the body go through a variety of stages:
a nude male body that suddenly acquires female breasts - a nude female
body - a dressed female body until it comes back to its initial image.
A hybrid hermaphrodite is composed, 25 years old (average age).
