"These artists have, to some extent, transcended their bodies. By which I mean, through their art they can also be understood as a drain, the adult video store that titillated them, the ominous hospital beds where they once rested, and couches and tables, and other spaces where they find solace from the world outside.

They have become a place, a landscape, a site: and this is not just a mere extension of their bodies, but rather the (un)pleasant feeling of being that neither the meticulous rendering of a face nor the careful expression of light could support." - Ivan Acebo-Choy
