“A bodyguard must know very little peace.”
“I’ve never felt this safe before.”
“No one could get by you.”
“Were you tough?”
“No I was fast.”
‘BODYGUARD’is a five track EP by DJ, producer and interdisciplinary artist 8ULENTINA. ‘BODYGUARD’ addresses themes of protection and the tension around what it means to feel safe. How do bodies protect each other? How do we deal with that mutual responsibility and trust?
