An installation made up of five photographs, in which the actions of different young Asian couples are frozen as they dress and undress each other with sports competition clothing. The décor that surrounds the characters, defined by impersonal darkness and the presence of different benches that recall some of the artist’s sculptures, work to create a cold atmosphere, in contrast to the intimate environment of affective emotions and the identity of these figures.
