In I-On Ivo Dimchev works with sculptures by Franz West, an Austrian artist best known for his unconventional objects and sculptures, installations and furniture works that often require the audience's involvement. His so-called "Adaptives" or "Fitting Pieces" are objects intended not only for contemplation but also for taking them in hand and using them as prosthetic extensions of the body.

In I-On, Dimchev, explores West's objects in a very personal confrontation with contemporary art. In an absurd and intense collage of physical interactions, he playfully confronts his substantial living body with the objects' abstract and stiff materiality.

"In this performance, Ivo Dimchev works with Franz West's "Adaptives" sculptures with humour, but also with an unbelievable intensity, which seemingly brings out his darkest side. - Elisabeth Nehring, SPIEGEL
