Anna Lascari

A chorus from an ancient Greek tragedy or fossils from another Pompeii? .... My concern is the superficial, sensual, and familiar skin. I "live" inside a skin, and I can only know you through your own derma and clothes.

Chorus looks as if women had shed their skin and the garments they wore, which are then left hanging from the ceiling... All muscles and bones, as internal unknowable items, have been scraped away, leaving the protective derma as witness to their volume. The sensual and familiar skin, dressed in sin and tears, appears here as an inviolable shell, even though skin cannot actually provide any protection, for it is, in its suppleness, constantly recording the experiences.
