The meaning of a cocoon – el capullo in Spanish – depends on the perspective of the viewer: whoever is inside may possibly feel confined and want to break out; while the one on the outside may feel homeless and long for a feeling of safety. This ambivalence between freedom and the feeling of safety is at the core of the new works created by the Lucerne photographer Jesco Tscholitsch. He implemented his idea with a male and a female dancer from the ensemble of the Lucerne Theatre. Those looking to find faces in the large pigment-ink printed collages will do so in vain, “because faces”, Tscholitsch says, “only distract from what I want to show”. It is the fundamental tension that exists between man and object, the interaction between the body and the hollow form depicted in the cocoon ballet.
