The image of the human body is a form of visual confirmation of our identity and self-awareness. We (physiologically) know what we are or how our bodily organs function, but as soon as the unity of this familiar source is disrupted, the sense of certainty and recognition gives way to ambiguity, doubt, and questioning. Considering the potential of the body, when it must cease movement and become lifeless, it will inevitably lead towards decay and corruption.
“ Entanglement” abstractly represents the body as a subject with a formalist perspective, detached from all functions and complex systems or figurative representations. A body composed of masses of skin and muscle, tension and interweaving of veins and arteries, with a porous texture. This kind of perspective opens a new window into the concept of self, which will question the meaning of being and existence. An existential perspective that, as Erwin Yalom puts it, humans have struggled with unresolved sufferings throughout human history in the four contents of death, loneliness, emptiness, and freedom.
