About This Work

Adhesive Identification is a series of animated gif inspired by the theory of the skin ego devised by Didier Anzieu.

The skin not only designates the corporeal boundaries of the self, but also provides the interface for establishing meaningful relations with the outside world by offering an inscribing surface for marks left by others. Anzieu’s concept assumes the body’s physical skin as the primary organ underlying the formation of the ego. It’s the contact with the world that makes us what we are.

My research has distanced itself from an anthropocentric view of the world, preferring a conception of subjectivity as a process, the individual as a mutable entity that can be defined only temporarily by its relations.
