Skin is an interface. Through skin we can sensually grasp the world, touch others and let ourselves be touched – at the same time we have to protect the physical limit of our body against unpleasant influences and cover up faulty places. At this point many questions arise about being and appearance, about demarcations and connections.
Where does the physical and social body begin and where does it end? What are we covering? With her latest sculpture, Julia Hanzl allows an investigating look through skin, which scratches with sovereign irony on seemingly perfect complexion.
