Human Dilatations

 

Human Dilatations_Compositions, Suspension and Monoliths are a glimpse of the lack the contemporary human being, bared of the two elements that distinguish his quest: the physical perfection and the actual power/role of the mind. Each image represents a body whose proportions are partially distorted and prevails over a head that dissolves, without leaving a trace.

My path began with the approach of the image of women of our times has been reduced to a pattern, a combination of codes and models that lead to the woman/individual instead of the other way around. Human Dilatations does not fear the marks of frailness of the body and its imperfections but rather encourages the female image to appear as a whole: a shape by itself, in a game of distortions that allows one to differently relate to the image, entirely detached from the stereotypical and hypocritical notion of beauty.

My challenge is to seek the essence of the female being in a dimension that goes beyond the logos, through my vision – the one of a male. In order to do so I referred to the Neolithic as a starting point. The symbolism of the Godded  and the mystery around life, death and regeneration. A cycle represented by a large complex of symbols, which survived over millennia of time, and present even before the patriarchal religions. When analyzing the small statues (made of bone, stone or terracotta) dating back to the stone age I immediately perceived their pure essence and fragility.
