    Identity Reconstruction

    Identity Reconstruction is a series of works that analyze the deconstruction and the reconstruction of the self, both physically and conceptually. The body becomes a metaphor of the inner constant struggle of identity reconfiguration. The works describe and suggest possible portraits, self-portraits or personas. The concept of a well traced identity becomes uncertain, the viewer being provoked to discover it in each work of the series.
