CORE (2019) is a walk through centuries, through the woods and the lakes, reaching the depths of the unconscious and dreams. With her piece, Samantha Bohatsch dives into the eternal interpersonal communication and transmission channels of female figures. Great ladies such as the commonly named Venus of Monruz, excavated with her peers from the sites on the shore of lake Neuchâtel, the witches of the Jura, Maria Magdalena and other female ancestors and archetypes, intertwine like many internal voices that seem to immerge from the same entrails. CORE deals with (re)birth, everchanging and commutable bodies, the loss of landmarks and finding the way home.
