Reading 'A Cyborg Manifesto'
Cyanotype on canvas, 228 x 240 cm
Why should our bodies end at the skin?
Donna J. Haraway, A Cyborg Manifesto
This work was created with the technique of blue print. In a sort of private performance, I lay naked under the sunlight on a canvas that was previously cyanotyped, reading the book "A Cyborg Manifesto".
The passing of time fixes my body on the sheet. What remains at the end of the performance is a trace of the contact of the body with the photosensitive surface. But after the developing of the blue print, the image created leaves an empty memory of the physicality.
The installation of the cyanotyped canvas shifts the body from horizontal to vertical.
