Cuerpo

2013. Video-performance, DVD PAL. 10’

The skin is the body’s largest organ. Its two square metres of tissue covers our body and marks its limits. At the same time it is a particular form of outer clothing that weighs four kilos. In addition, it is a device that is sensitive to its environs, to what happens around it, and a mediator that also reflects what is happening inside it.

Cuerpo is a video-performance in which an outer garment is made for a model using flour and water. She remains immobile and nude in front of the camera while her body is covered with pieces of dough connected to each other. The work questions the concept of tissue in its twofold meaning as textile and as epithelium.
