Based on seven different concepts (1: Touching, 2: Boxing, 3: Feeling, 4: Hearing, 5: Tasting, 6: Pushing, 7: Walking) and the corresponding bodily sensations, EXPORT looks at the relationship between media image and real image, between virtual projection screen and female body. She herself interacts as performer with the imaginary video screen, touching the glass pane set in front of a camera with her hands, licking it with her tongue, banging her head against it, walking across it with bare feet.
