Exhibition Communiqué : As the world becomes more and more chaotic, we retreat further and further into ourselves. A high-speed, stressful life is what’s expected of us, so at times we withdraw from the world as a means of protection.
We create a cocoon around our emotions as they grow ever more fragile. Even when we are passing through the world, our shields are up, separating us from the people around us. In Arwe’s series ‘Through the Second Skin’ this barrier becomes tangible.
The models are nude, more exposed than ever, but by being provided with fabric with which to wrap themselves in, they can feel free and safe to be truly themselves.
