Self-portrait, 2015

Direct print on plexiglass. 178x80x0,5 cm

An x-ray self-portrait is completed with several X-rays of strangers, which converge in shaping a unique whole. The skeleton pictured by the radiography is an object that becomes a subject, a living being image that is at the same time a death symbol. Iconography and iconoclasm are here strictly related: the work mirrors the viewer, but denies the subject, literally passing through the skin and personal feature, showing only characteristics shared with every human being. In this way, portraying is negating the portrait practice: what remains is a collage of many individuals that build a one that denies the oneness.
