BODIES AND HEADS


BODIES

There is no action without a reaction. There is no perception of something without the subjectivity of the beholder. Our body (and its depictions) embraces all – or almost all – human experiences. It is an open platform whose image contains everything it creates. The history of its representation is almost as old as humankind itself. These projects are focused on human bodies, their interactions, relations and conflicts.

HEADS

The head is an extension of the soul and is capable of externalising it. The image of the head reveals what is not visible, the soul. In these projects the moods shown by heads and faces, from misery to glory.
