A snail’s soft body has produced a shell to protect it. Like a snail, people sometimes lock themselves
up and stiffen when the outside world seems hostile. The body then becomes a shell which contains
suppressed emotions.

The spiral interior of the MWW shelter brings
to mind a shell filled with floors. Its initial protective
function has nowadays secondary importance.
Today, the shelter shelters art. What does it shelter
it from? The thick concrete walls repress the body, which shrinks and looks for ways to break free…

Patrycja Mastej inspired by butoh dance intuitively cut up fragments of human body depictions, which will free the expression of petrified
movements and postures. The shape oozing out
from the shell will trigger a cascade of melodies
that will shroud us. Wrapped up in sound, we will immerse into the soft seats and abandon verticality
in favour of horizontality to admire the emotional landscape revealed by the installation.

When a snail abandons its shell, it comes into dialogue with the external world. Almost blind and
totally deaf, it uses its soft body to absorb impulses with all its surface. Inside the shelter, we will find
a similar space where we could express ourselves. Hidden from the world inside the concrete shell,
we will be given an opportunity to break the anabiosis, relax the muscles and open up.
