Bondage Series

The aim of the project is to outline the body as an object, in interaction with simple, everyday,
useful materials to make a comment on the relationship between man and objects.

People manufacture and use objects. The power relationship between manufacturer – operator of the object and the object itself- res [1] is actually grounded on the relationship of need and dependence of the former to the latter. I manufacture-use the objects I need; and eventually I depend on them:
a kind of enslavement to the objects, even the simplest ones.

The human body fuses, is tied to, is ” burdened ” with everyday household objects reflecting the above relationship.

This fusion of person and object eventually creates a hybrid expressing our times.

[1] res: (latin) thing , slave.
