Metamorphosis. A charity artbook documenting the changing image of HIV and Aids. A joint project with the Staatsballett Berlin. Artistically supervised by former theater director and professional dancer Vladimir Malakhov and the photographer Enrico Nawrath. Pictures full of contrast. High and subculture. Gentle parquet floor meets brutal concrete. Theater and Berghain. Restrained bodies and unfettered fetishes. Silken short skirts and leather harnesses. Ballet and techno. Posture. The performance of discipline. Both do dancing as if it were an exercise. Or a duty. One is refined and spherical. The other is raw, angular and edgy. One abstracts sexuality and romanticizes its norms. The other transgresses its boundaries and performs its materialization. Metamorphosis. Living change.
