Body and Sexuality


© Hans Bellmer

O elemento feminino é ao mesmo tempo um elemento museológico e um objecto de desejo, uma distorção das relações humanas, uma falsa perpetuação da vida, um sonho (pesadelo?) em tempo real. O homem tenta recriar a mulher conforme a sua vontade. A tentativa de preencher uma lacuna afectiva, a satisfação do desejo a qualquer preço. A adulteração e fuga à realidade. A fantasia e imitação da vida.
Pedro Medeiros

To be naked is to be oneself.
To be nude is to be seen by others and yet not recognized for oneself.
A naked body has to be seen as an object in order to become a nude.
(The sight of it as an object stimulates the use of it as an object.)
Nakedness reveals itself. Nudity is placed on display.
To be naked is to be without disguise.
To be on display is to have the surface of one’s own skin,
the hairs of one’s body turned into a disguise which,
in that situation, can never be discarded.
The nude is condemned to never being naked.
John Berger
