Let's exhume the Obscene.

 

Obscene as everything that contemporary society omits from the everyday life of Western man. Death and the Corpse are kept apart, far from the sight and contact of the population. 

 

In this panorama intervene my photos that bring the obscene back into the limelight, exhuming the corpse, skinning it and bringing the skin back to the light; a skin that still has the pink-purple stains of livor mortis and that takes on the appearance of a canvas of abstract art.

 

As in a last embrace, the artist wrap herself in her Mother's skin in a fetal position, claiming to regain contact with her.

 

The triptych can be read in two different ways depending on the order in which the first and second image are arranged. In the first version, starting from the complete wrapping, the artist discover herself and reborn, as if she were undressing from that skin, letting it go and living off her own body alone.

 

In the second reading, instead, she cover herself completely, the skin takes her in, she blinds and takes the artist with her in the darkness.
