The two artists' setting puts the animal's anthropomorphisation and the human regulating procreation and sexuality up for discussion. Neon objects, horse bandages, slime and hand hooks are used as ambivalent cornerstones for de-encrusting stuck thinking structures and conditioning. Questions of morality are critically examined, and the possibility of opposing the Anthropocene with other futuristic systems of relationships is discussed and treated. Theoretical approaches, conversation and text references are important actors in this exhibition, accompanied by a sound installation in the room.

The mucus' presence also has a metaphorical character, as it is supposed to lubricate one's conditioning and make it flexible. The two artists also discover this conditioning in themselves; they take a critical look at their automatisms and habits and reveal the balancing act between ideal - dealing with feminist theories - and their everyday life. Artistically they put the work process of extensive research with theoretical references in a nutshell. They challenge the sensual, the emotional, the rational, even the supernatural, move between fiction and information, give space to the uncanny.
