ANTIBODIES (PHOTO COLLAGES)



“The body is the instrument of our hold on the world.”

(Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex)

Antibodies  is a series of surreal photo collages created by using images from fashion,  lifestyle and erotic magazines. Utilizing techniques such as fragmentation, obliteration, overlapping and juxtaposition the artwork deconstructs the human body and challenges established notions of beauty, identity and sexuality.
Antibodies also tackles issues such as the supposed indexicality and "truthfulness" of the photographic medium and raises questions regarding ownership, copyright, and the appropriation and (ab)use of imagery. In this overtly hyper-technological, post-photographic age we live in the boundaries between truth and illusion are questionable. Images can be downloaded, appropriated and manipulated to a point where authorship is lost and the viewer is not sure what he or she is looking at.
Ultimately the work is a critique of the unhealthy obsession with bodily looks and a reaction against our constant bombardment with oversexualized, quasi-pornographic images by the media and the entertainment industry. It seems as if moral and aesthetic standards have lost their significance in an era of consumerist numbness, artificial pleasure, objectification and instant gratification.

anti-human

humanoid defecating machines
eternally raping the earth
mindless mobile masses
lives that shouldn't be

copulating zombies
reproducing robots
same futile story
on and on and on

oh death my brother
i beckon you please
save me from horror
this earthly existence

unborn and uncreated
i am the silent witness
upload me into nothingness
my true and only home
