Exilentia Exiff - Lost feminities
here) the "about me" says "Exiff is an animal, that wants to become God. That makes him suffer. Exilentia is just an idea of a woman. That makes exiff feel better. „exilentia exiff” is human. It is a human project.". Never an old female body was shown with such a sexualized but non euphemistic approach. Of course it can be a bit shocking and too much for many and could be seen as outrageously humiliating for aged people but actually I see it as an incredible affirmation of life and permanence of sensuality, a visual manifest for freedom that could be prolonged until the agony like some painters did previously. The last one of the above series is rather intriguing and provocative. I don't know the meaning of the strings in the flesh in several pictures. Surely that means something. I got my own interpretations but everyone can have his/her. Yes, this is a strong project. And more to come from this important artist on Scoptophilia.
