Body Architecture I

"Body Architectures" is a 3 year project, composed of 5 series respectively. "Body Architectures" is born from a concern for the body. It presents questions and reflections on identity, on the meaning that society gives to my body, on what it means to have and to be, at the same time, a body. As Judtih Bulter explains "the body appears as a passive medium on which cultural meanings are inscribed". In this sense, it is recognized that the processes of incorporation fostered by culture shape the subjects of society, with the body becoming a symbolic construction. This project is consolidated as an investigation that metaphorically works the construction of the normative body from the construction of objects-prosthesis and the explorations that arise between body and object, with the purpose of developing diverse narratives that question the socio-cultural models of codification of the present. In this construction/exploration process, the body is constituted as a narrative space. The methodology itself becomes research, since multiple readings or narratives can be generated from the same object.
