Zazah’s series investigated the emotional landscape of the human heart. This series focuses on the cell – one of the most elemental, yet already extremely complicated living parts of the human body. As a carrier of memories, feelings, thoughts and stories, the cell transforms nutrients into energy: giving us the power to move and be moved physically and emotionally. As an autonomous whole, each cell constitutes a tiny microcosm in constant motion and caught in the natural cycle of death and re-birth. Yet in an almost imperceptible revolution, the power of renewal can turn against itself, leaving the cell to – like an unstoppable lemming – race towards a destructive and terminal end.
