Video projections by Peng Yun and José Drummond
Souls which are one shall meet is a concurring concept with the concept of soulmate and with its origin in Plato’s „Symposium“. The idea of four arms, four legs and a single head made of two faces takes an interesting value when applied to the concept of two artists working together to the same object, the same goal.
