In the installation "Surface Study" I investigate the vulnerability and recovery of human surfaces based on photographic material. In a postproduction process I apply digital healing tools on injuries and violation of human skin - a digital "re-touching" process.
The large scale textile prints of collaged human skin relate individual history to historical events, alienates the cultural phenomenon of idealised human representation through photography, but also the process of healing after violation acts in environment, society and humanity.

The work was produced for the Exhibition "Quando scoppia la pace", curated by Dimitri Ozerkov, Director Contemporary Art @Hermitage St. Petersburg
