Stigmas

year: 2002
dimensions: 220/200, 160/120 cm
technique: installation
colorful photo print, bull skin,
bronze castings, steel hooks
description: The theme of this installation is a very personal relationship with the male part of the author's family.

Father, brother, son and date of birth number completed in the form of stamps marking, firing on animal skin in this case stretched in space on butcher's hooks.

The figure of a naked woman (on a colored photographic print) lying face down in a gesture of penance is a symbolic act of submission to one's own will against the masculinity described above.

The photographic print lies directly on the floor opposite the suspended skin and  four stamps cast in bronze.
