Ex Corpore is based on the gesture of extracting and taking portions of images from gay pornographic sources. The project explores pornography both as a staged intimacy and as an urge to desire for actual closeness. The extract is a process in which the virtual images became real. In this way, the image of a body becomes a body in itself. The analogy between the bodies internal to the image and the embodied image generates two epidermal levels: one skin within the scene and another consisting of the coloured surface, made of craters, spots and wounds.
