Francesca DI BONITO
DEVOUT FLESH draws its origins from a plastic study of the human anatomy and the hand-made processes of photographic material.
The narrative is constructed through metamorphosis, and the practice of manual sewing and digital collage. The pictures depict statues with classical shapes, and a mystical appearance that harbors anatomical illustrations, and ordinary stitched objects, anchor points of a chronicle, one thing leading to another.
DEVOUT FLESH is a polysemous work which approaches the relation to the sacred. The work confronts the feeling of creed, and earthly and organic dimensions of faith.
