Corpus Muros is a project
that aims to transpose the impact that social pressure exerts on people in
today’s society onto the human body.
Uniform-looking humanoïd figures devoid of any specific characteristics are then born.
They become human-shaped shells for the soul they contain. Envelopes to protect ourselves from one another and to appear as perfect as possible.
As a consequence, the body becomes a representation of the psychological state, alternatively a battlement and a proud sculpture.
