the atopic experiments
In my work I want to express the feeling and the meaning of Atopy, which is, at the same time, placelessness in philosophy and hypersensibility of the body in medicine. Coming to another place to live sets your body in another state. Your familiar surrounding is often defining how you behave, how you look and how you think. In an unknown environment, a new side of your personality could come to life. The body is an indicator for the outside world, their first boundary point with your personality but it is also your protection shield, your steady place within the placenessness.
This work gives me the opportunity to explore my body through different weaving experiments. I was particularly interested in the transformation of threedimensional body shapes into a twodimensional form and other unexpected woven bodies and textures. The flexible weavings are dealing with the fragility and the changes of a human body, my body. l was looking for new ways to view this strange relationship one has with his body by seeing it through his own fatious view. I wanted to concentrate on the emotional value of the corpus, as a space within and especial without an environment, leading to the creation of my own body landscapes
