Stéphane Dumas — EPITHELIA

Visual Art/The Skin of Space

« A light breeze can be felt as you enter a small room. The walls, illuminated from below, are thin sheets of moving membrane - latex to be sure - but very much like skin. The light makes the skins translucent and smooth one moment, filled with surface detail at another. You begin to see impressions, images and stories embedded into these membranes. You have entered “La salle des peaux perdues,” Stéphane Dumas’ sensuous and provocative investigation of myth, Christian iconography, biology and memory. »

This series is about the fragmented human figure. It aims at creating a new relation to the body, with its inside turned outside. These skins belong to nobody and to everybody. Skin is here the medium of art and the skin of space.
