In "Corpóreo, Extendible", I use the human form as a performative vessel. I fragment, isolate, and play with different aspects of the body to reveal its limitations and fragility. Through my creative practice, I attempt to distort the body's structure in order to transgress its physical and aesthetic barriers. In these images, I reinterpret and reconstruct our perception of the human body, and expand its emotional and physical capabilities.
