Do not feel sorry for your nudity

Approach to my body and to the body of the other through the tissue.

Crocheted pieces with cotton threads. The colors were chosen according to the skin tone and specific characteristics of the heteropatriarchal areas determined as sexed of the subjects, as well as the shape, size and characteristics of each one, in order to normalize the contact and observation of these "taboo" areas. .

The first piece is a reproduction of these parts of my body, in two sections: the breasts and the genital area up to the waist. The project explores the approach  and the  conciliation with my body  starting from the elaboration of the suit, using the fabric as a means to achieve it.

The second piece is a reproduction of the genital area of a male subject, filled with seeds, in order to achieve a poetic image and at the same time closer to reality.

During the elaboration  of the suits, a relationship of respect and vulnerability was achieved between the other and me, a situation   achieved  thanks to time and as a consequence of the tissue process, thus demystifying and normalizing observation and contact with one's own body  and that of the other.
