Stingray so so sad by Mary-Audrey Ramirez is at the same time a sculpture and a costume. In the exhibition, the stingray is hung on a bar next to nude coloured dancing tights and striped panties. The animal with its cristal-studded limbs can hug the body of the dancer who puts it on to dance with it. Body movement is a central topic in the work of Mary-Audrey Ramirez, which includes sculptures in the form of animals as well as performances with those artworks. Her animals take up characteristic traits, moods, or exressions typical for human beings and are at the same time mirror images and companions.
