Body art, 2018
Deep inside, I always fear my own body. Seeing myself naked is frightening. Looking in the mirror, I always ask: Who am I? My body? My mind? Or the image that I have been creating for years? Am I trapped in this body? Or is it all I am, flesh and bones?
To feel who I am, to exist in this body, and experience a moment of making it, what the jewelry should be? It can’t be permanent cause I am not what I was a moment ago and what I will be in the coming moment.  If jewelry is a piece to wear and get prettier and feel better about myself, can it be a color to put on my skin?
