Beyond the Body por Imme van der Haak


"Mi trabajo se concentra en alterar el cuerpo humano con formas que afectan la figura con una simple intervención. Las fotos de los cuerpos están pintadas y las impresiones translucidas en seda crean posibilidades físicas de capas de diferentes cuerpos, edades, generaciones e identidades..."

Imme van der Haak - Beyond the Body (2012)
Artist’s statement: 
“My work focuses on altering the human form by affecting its figure with just one simple intervention. Photos of the human body are printed onto translucent silk which will create the possibility of physically layering different bodies, ages, generations and identities.
In a dance performance, the moving body manipulates the fabric so the body and the silk become one, distorting our perception or revealing a completely new physical form. The movement then brings this to life.”
