Rigor Mortis

Digital Photograph
100 X 104 cm / 39 x 41 in

Based on the performance art series Rigor Mortis, in which the use of a tourniquet to let one of my arms gradually lose color and temperature is the leitmotif. The contrast between the right arm and the numb one seeks to portray the Life and Death contrast in a single image. When taking my limp to this state, it dies somehow, partially dying myself too. This piece is framed within the concept of Memento Mori that appears in my production. This piece earned me a nomination to the Residence Art Pivo in Sao Paulo, sponsored by the Fundación Cisneros.
