In Kind, we enter a distant and out of joint universe littered by somber fairy tales and magic. We find ourselves in a somber forest at the foot of menacing cliffs, a world that precedes good and evil, in which no limits have been set yet. With infantile tics and gestures, a girl who is far too large riding a bike that is far too small for her leads us into her universe on the fraying borders of the unconscious. A state where the earth speaks, where children grow on trees, and where strange events spark curiosity rather than alarming anyone.
The piece delves into themes such as violence, the paradox between the real and the fake, the other, trauma, all from the question on identity. To a large extent, the environment we grow up in and the people who surround us determine the person we become. The same holds in Kind. The child reflects her environment, but she also resists it – precisely in order to be able to establish her own identity. In this duality, Kind questions the perverse aspects of identity formation.
