Abstract [en]

This project is dealing with the human body and surgical modifications. I am wondering how to achieve the aim of provoking compassion, rejection and attraction in one collection. I would like to deeply move the sensation of your own body by showing deformed and reconstructed bodies. Cut off body parts and re-sew them somewhere else… I want to show something that is considered to be disgusting in a context where you would not expect to meet it.Furthermore, I would like to show that anything that looks normal disgusts you in an abnormal size or position. I want people to discover such elements at a second glance and I chose this theme also in order to provoke myself. I was wondering how it would affect my work by chosing a topic that irritates myself. The background for this project is built on a two year research and I am going to highlight the decisions along the way.I do relate my work strongly to Matthew Barneys way of creating and I got influenced by his aesthetics. But also the methods I used were significant for my end result which I am showing in form of clinical reports in which each character and its personal story is described. This report ends with a discussion part where I evaluate the result and my competence.
