Torn Skin by Lúa Ocaña
- Hannah Edwards
Clearance between the concepts of skin, breaking and time. Each image is formed by two Polaroid snapshots, one broken and superimposed over each other. So ‘the time of the taking of the photograph’ is essential, is not frozen at a precise time but yields a continuous fragment of time. The course between the act of tearing the photographic material and simultaneously the time to shed the first layer of skin covers the bodies, clothing, all that journey through time and what happens in it is reflected in each final assembly.
With her work the Spanish photographer Lúa Ocaña allows us to participate in her sense of space, we are allowed to take a step into her world.
