How can a visual artist build new interpretations of a body from fragments and how can he submit information about this very personal research process to the public? What is the role of the body in social and individual contexts? In my research project the physical and mental relationship with the body is the starting point. Religion, rituals, faith, death, disease and healing have been a guiding theme in my work for years. According to Aristotle, mind and body are two different elements , elements that are not complete but incomplete. Both together form a complete something, a human being. But even if this ‘complete something’ exists , there is a kind of duality. For this lecture I will analyze some of my most personal and relevant work. I try to understand what the body is and what the boundaries are between the aesthetic and the emotional. I do not pretend to give answers or to confirm existing ideas. I want to share a clear impression of what for me as an artist physical body is, what a psychological body is, what is visible and what is intimate?
