Malene Kastalje, 2018, Denmark

The swollen part

I seek to interpret the vulnerability implicit in our lives, while trying to find a balance between misgrowth, mental strength and sensual beauty. I grasp the parts of ourselves that we tend to hide, excrescences get picked from abandoned corners, errors sneak in and lay down like small pockets of reality. The final pieces can be perceived as an extension of the interior, materialized as visible body growths.
