‘This is my body. I accept it the way it is. My appearance is a key to my destiny. While changing our appearance, we change our essence. Our perception of the parts of our bodies is biased. We see them separately, as fragments. Each our fragment has its mission, but we forget that they represent a single whole. The same is true about us. Each of us, fulfilling his own mission, belongs to the entity of the Universe. My hieroglyph is a key to the discovery of a new vision, expressed in the acceptance of our external code rather than in fighting it. My autograph.
The installation was inspired by da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, revealing the perfection in the human proportions and acting as an implicit symbol of internal symmetry of the human body and, further on, of the Universe as a whole.’
