Emmanuel Lacoste, 2018, France


“O” has been conceived by deconstructing conceptualization in order to get to the core of my personal way of creating. I used a single piece of my own skin, cut out of my back in a shape of a big circle, dried and prepared, and finally covered with gold leaf.

Gold is used in its simplest and most delicate form to “mask the unspeakable and make it more acceptable”.
