THE EXPERIENCE OF INHABITING A BODY

This is a work of experimental and performative photography about the experience of inhabiting a body. It aims to be an active tool against the established beauty canon, stereotypes, objectification, and invisible violence towards women's bodies.

THE EXPERIENCE OF INHABITING A BODY

Being a process, not a project

Deleuze said that what prevents life from flowing is language and moral judgment. Our language is that of being, identity, the language of fixed contours. But Art is capable of expressing relationships beyond language in order to communicate in a different way, opening itself to what traverses, to what changes, by letting itself be infected. In contagion, there is fusion and the possibility of something new emerging.

Defining a body by its belonging to a species is limiting, but we can talk about the affections it is capable of and the mobile limits of its territory. We can know what a body can do through its experience.

This is a work of experimental and performative photography about the experience of inhabiting a body. It aims to be an active tool against the established beauty canon, stereotypes, objectification, and invisible violence towards women's bodies.

Bodies disorganize, contort, hybridize, mutate, break, and intertwine, forming a unique body in continuous transformation. Each movement of this "other" body generates a state of metamorphosis that offers the possibility of evolving freely to distance oneself from the canon. It is the starting point for building a new imaginary of women's bodies, an indefinite transition towards adopting a new utopian form where every kind of body is possible.

Through these images, the relationship between body, identity, sexuality, and monstrosity is explored as a metaphor for liberation. By confronting different materialities with distorted bodies, nudity is assumed as a space for self-awareness, promoting desire and vulnerability.
