Scortea

Bark, wood and paint - 2m² - 2019

Dissect and bark are two terms etymologically linked by the same root. To bare, to remove any envelope, Scortea translates this ambiguity in the act of operating. The sculpture imposes a graphism by its black and white tints, but also by its material and its composition. Voluntarily imposing by its surface of 2m², the extent presented on the ground evokes the surface of the skin if this one were dissected completely. Each of the parcels draws imperfect and uneven forms. The skin is the envelope that conceals, it loses its unity. Here the body crumbles into several fragments that emerge from the black and then retreat to the surface of the ground. The body thus becomes a landscape to explore.
