BODY PRESENCE IDENTITY
The work discusses the relationship I have with my body as physical complex matter related to the construction of my identity.
I started this project studying my body through photographic record. I made it by taking into consideration the language of Photography, working with the shape of the human body through the B&W technique (Black and White) and using digital and analog camera for it.
I also felt the necessity to participate more of the process of creating the image, I mean, putting my own mark on the image and creating a unique piece of it. A way to do that was working on the physical materiality of the picture, using parts of my body to develop large photograms of my fingerprints. As my body touched the paper it revealed the fingerprints underneath. My body became part of my work in the way its presence and movement filling the space constructs the photographs and reveals my identity related to the way I interpret this physical complex matter. Every time the human body has historically been represented in a different form, this physical environment reflects the culture of some specific time and place, despite its universal character. The human body may be perceived or interpreted within their meaning in a subjective way. Traditionally photographs do not emphasize shapes and contours in the same way I am proposing here. I use my own body to leave a mark on the photographic paper as a fingerprint on an identification document. I also reduce the space originally three-dimension into a bi-dimensional picture, which gives different views of the body parts. I intend to put together art and psychology in order to enforce self-recognition.
The trials are essential in my work to build a visual contemporary aesthetics through photographic language. I have produced an image that is open to various meanings, in which the viewers can add some value through their experiences.
My body establishes a dialogue with the viewer through the photographs, linking previous experiences and an accompanying sensual awareness. In doing so, they are connected into a web of meanings that arise in relation to the images.
