Anatomica#3 is the last part of the Anatomica tryptich. In this series, André Gingras is inspired by the danger, beauty, and consequences of the body on display.
Anatomica#3 investigates the objectification and virtuosity of the body. In contemporary society, our bodies have become sites of display; consumed by the media as role models, supermodels, museum exhibits and MTV “Made” victims. Our bodies have become objectified, pimped up and rendered meaningless. Nonetheless, the body still surprises us. It reappears in its most personal and inspiring of forms; a subject that displays its most extraordinary abilities and a profound fragility.
In the excess of display, how low can we sink and how high can we fly?
