Statement on Body of Body Art
It is about how humans and animals represent itself to itself. There are signs and poetic metaphors – an image system within the mind’s own image system. It involves a montage of secret codes from a collection of found objects and personal observations representing unexpected encounters with the material world. In the tableau, the image represents a condition peculiar to the world of makeovers.
