A Metamorfose do Corpo

[Free Entrance]

The process of creating " A Metamorfose do Corpo (The Metamorphosis of the Body)" suffered changes until it became what is now presented at Mupi Gallery. It started initially with an idea for a solo performance, as if it were a self-portrait that was constructed and worked live.

In that initial idea, my body was covered with successive layers of paint of various colours, like different layers of a narrative. Each colour would correspond to a mask or a camouflage, layers that when mixed together would reach a breaking point.

I explored this idea for 2 years until I turned it into a sketch for a photo shoot, now using someone else's body.

Clay was used, not to banish or veil a body, but to highlight its stress lines, shapes and imperfections.

To mould perhaps, its expression, so that in the end something distinctive might emerge.
