LIFE CYCLE & A TRAP CALLED THE BODY

A TRAP CALLED THE BODY,2019

Throughout their lives, women are subjected to a process of physical and psychological conditioning. Socializing them for the role that society prepared for them. This role is serving as a biological function necessary for the reproduction of the tribe through marriage. 

One of the female identifiers is her sexual function. From this function of her social character and behavior to her spontaneous body movements. What is noticeable, is the intensity of women of their body, in every move or bend, which they feel as decoys.

In this work, I am expressing how I feel with my own body… Always trapped, never free.

LIFE CYCLE, 2019

We live and experience life and it tests us too. From our own experiences we change, we expand our perception, We add new layers to our persona, to see ourselves after years and not recognizing self.

Life is a collective of stories that we experience. These experiences shape ourselves and add layers to our personality. These layers build the current self.

In this body of work, I want to draw a link between Self-Identity and the medium.

This work is about the process and time. I started by taking a self-portrait, then print them via copy machine. Transforming a digital image into a low-resolution one. I then created a narrative via composition... Photograph it and then destroy it.it is about building and demolishing .. It is the circle of life. In the end what is remaining is a photo as evidence for my story.
