Conceptual Statement: |Precious tats| [project 2020] Is a continuation of my |Precious parts| project, studying different textures of skin, including scars and bulging tattoos, [which is basically a keloid]. Electroforming helps to save the skin texture better than casting, so the objects not only have skin texture perfectly saved, but also have remains of rough convex tattoos. During the project, I pay a lot attention to differences in textures, to all [so called] imperfections, to how a body changes in different states and positions, to how the skin works [stretches and shrinks] and how [keloid] tattoos behave on different body shapes. I’ve created Collarbones with a transdermal implant [mask] and [tattooed pregnant belly] cuirass with the remains of bulging tattoos. This is a surreal twist because I created |armory|, using modern technics with tattoos that should remind about battle scars and ornaments of original medieval armory.
