The Myth of the Amphisbaena

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

The Amphisbaena, a mythological creature coined by Borges, is a snake with a head at both ends. Joined at the head by 36 feet of artificial hair for 8 days, two artists attempt to chart a journey through London, questioning the relationship between dependency and domination as the 'creature' tries to reconcile itself with its paradoxical nature, like siamese twins joined by an umbilical chord of hair.
