“Consubstantiation departs from a reflection about bodies that do not imagine themselves as they are medically described. Its centre is the somatic embodiment of an uterus undergoing a process of pregnancy in my seen as male body. What is an anatomical evidence within a female body, will becomes an uncanny fiction when proposed over my masculine body working to construct and produce and inhabit the somatic textures of this fiction making it progressively more and more tangible without entering a mimetic simulacrum.” Dinis Machado
