mother of jesus / mother nature / mother of all of us

This trilogy is sustained for questions of perception. Maybe a kind of subversion.
An ironical process, turning the body and myself into what I want to project, exploring wha we could perceive as natural. A closer look at the body in all its modes while also exploring the line between sexuality and purpose.
The body is condemned to a series of attitudes, poses, and readings; it is unable to escape its status as a kind of story waiting to be told and even the most casual poses can cause a detailed reading about what we are and how we arrived there.
