Özgür Demirci presents a story of a journey towards the source of spiritual, physical and historical wounds and healing that come to life with a person and / or acquired later. It turns the points where the wound and ointment meet and separate into a two-channel performative video with two different texts and the participation of specially designed sound and music for each. Starting from bodily healing, he realizes the parts of social, environmental, political and spiritual wounds under the skin and turns to the issues that feed them.
