Deformitas/Deiformitas

2018

 

White wall, 4 black and white photographs 100x150 cm each. on pvc banner, 4 bull's-eye lights with white light

The title of the work comes from the interpretation of the word "deformity" given by Saint Augustine and the Fathers of the Church of Africa. Deformity, from Deformitas, is understood as "the Form of God".

 

Christianity venerates, in fact, a suffering man, deformed by pain. Originally the figure of Christ was always represented with grimaces caused by the intense pain caused by his tortures. This image has been abolished over time.

 

In this work the artist presents four deformed bodies as Gods, which emanate a blinding light that annoys the eyes, just as the divine light would be blinding. In this way their bodies become difficult for the viewer to use, hidden from the sight of the "common mortal".
