A one-off light activated album, film and 50 facsimile books comprising a collection of semi-transparent images of bruising made in collaboration with model / artist Tessa Kuragi.
Each bruise is presented in an appropriated album decorated with nautical illustrations. This passive backdrop creates an uneasy juxtaposition to the monochrome realism of damaged flesh.
Each bruise can be viewed in isolation using directional light or together the collection forms a combined bruise that lightens with each page turn, mirroring the fading of a bruise over time while the one-off album is updated with new bruises as they occur.
A limited edition book and poster are available at lehaye.co.uk/bruise-album and lehaye.co.uk/Bruise-Poster
Soundtrack by Benedict Edwards
