The Body
(is not an object) 


Whether it is a question of another's body or my own, I have no means of knowing the human body other than that of living it, which means taking up on my own account the drama which is being played out in it, and losing myself in it.

Maurice Merleau-Ponty
Lexicon 34: The Body (Is Not An Object)


 
 

The work does not declare.
The work reveals.

Ask yourself
What do you see

Do you see hands, legs, nipples
Color or shape or pixels
Do you see light or dark
black or white
Do you see beauty, vulgarity
exposure, strength
tragedy, joy
hope, despair
Choice
Do you see objects or
Do you see people

What do you see

The work does not declare.
The work reveals.

It is a mirror.

The mirror is mine.
The reflection is yours.
