2020-21, collage on card

Images of women performing classic yoga poses are juxtaposed with images appropriated from a vintage insect encyclopaedia. Positioned in such way that they obscure and replace the subject’s physiognomy, ‘Nature’ takes the place of facial and bodily features allowing for new relationships to form between the characters, their bodies and their surroundings. Following a long term interest in Freudian association of animality and sexual desire and “Animal horror B- Cinema”, this series evoke feelings of threat, infestation and fear, in relation to the current crisis.
