Body as a physical object

Magdalena Palmowska's avatar Magdalena Palmowska

This Work is a manifesto against the negative perception of differences between people. It aims to show that regardless of being different, each of us is human. That gender or nationality is the same trait as the color of eyes or hair. The project is based on photographs of men and women of different nationalities, and different ages. Each of the works is an assemblage from components of these photos. Each of the components shows a different part of the body that is combined with the others forming coherent images of human figures within the work. The work aims to present the body as a set of components of various origins and hypothetical replacement with potential substitutes, which does not dehumanize the individual. This series is a continuation of an idea born with my diploma artwork, which was awarded the highest prize as the best diploma work during the Prime Time 2020 competition and nominated to XII The Best Diplomas national competition in June 2021.
