In this solo, Jee-Ae Lim creates an imagined space where a body turns into blurred figures, a body that is a millimeter off of everything, a monster, a demonic unicorn, a body looking at you as an active agent and a body that is being looked at as the other. Within this unstable space the body fails to fit its image, which is constructed of the known or what is considered to be known. The body resets the borders of reality, personal stories, memories, fantasies, myths, and lies. The performance gradually removes the possibility of reproducing accustomed images, which rule the individual body. Subjunctive histories are built placing the body beyond the unitary historical context.

Your body is a lie, my body is a motive
Your body is a monster, my body is a blur
Your body fails to fit, my body fits to fail
Your body is an illusion, my body is ah~~~
Your body is a border, my body is delayed
Your body is humor, my body is human
Your body is a logic, my body is a knowledge
Your body is 나의 몸, my body is 너의 몸
Your body is my ghost, my body is your east
