How to become transparent: a series of 5 attempts

‚Äč

Medium: Performance

Description: The piece comprises a variety of absurd attempts aiming at achieving a transparent body. This work stems from my previous endeavors to escape the frame and get rid of a confining vessel, that is the human body. Transparency then becomes a metaphor for the absent visual that still maintains a tangible material nature. It is yet another absurd venture to get rid of the body, which I perceive as a metaphor for social confines.
