“My work focuses on altering the human form by affecting its figure with just one simple intervention. Photos of the human body are printed onto translucent silk which will create the possibility of physically layering different bodies, ages, generations and identities. In a dance performance, the moving body manipulates the fabric so the body and the silk become one, distorting our perception or revealing a completely new physical form. The movement then brings this to life.” – ww.immevanderhaak.nl/”>Imme van der Haak

“Using black Indian ink Israeli artist Ronit Bigal skilfully and meticulously wraps parts of her subjects skin in calligraphy that’s made up of Hebrew scriptures taken from Biblical texts. The abstract images are often left looking like landscapes as the tiny lettering follows the contours of the body.” – MyEdol
