Nostalgia With a Dose of Cynicism and Detachment

The installation takes the form of several design chairs spread throughout the power station on the upholstery of which is printed an ongoing investigation by the artist: the nature of pornographic images in which the environment and space have identical aesthetics without any skin texture, as the artist has digitally altered the images to preclude the body and emphasize the iconographic depth in the images, both in composition and form. Inasmuch pornography has the ability to subvert various media; in this instance, it confirms the fact that censorship changes the meaning of the work.
