Digital photography, digital sculpture
Body fictions try to capture the relationship of the artist with his own
body in intimate places. The series explores the transformation of the
body through the look, through the confrontation to others and through
Body Fiction I
explores body dysmorphia. The artist is here represented with the body
that his gaze and brain force on him in the mirror: deformed, different
from an objective body, different from the desired body. It is also
expertly crafted by years of observation, practically unchangeable, like
jewelery that hinders the wearer.
Body Fiction II
confronts the artist's body to the idealized body of others. The
pictures tells the erotic story lived between the artist and a man with
ideal proportions in a pool. The inflated muscles of the latter are
superimposed over the skin of the artist, like a memory of the sensual
touch that has been obsecured by the comparison of their bodies.
In Body Fiction
III, the insides of the artist are imagined in the interior of the
artist. The bed is a place where the conscious experiences the internal
system, experiences symptoms and therefore dialogs with organic tissues.
Organs that are usually autonomous and inaudible barge into the sheets
to signal dysfunctionment.
