Naked male and female body projections on the outerwear hanging on a special construction form a unified moving mechanism.
The ‘Untitled’ is a nameless person, a naked body without own face, lacking most valuable and explicit visual identity.
Despite own impersonality, this body mechanism continues to move and, therefore, to live and function.
The outerwear, the live human mass projected on, was bought at the Second Hand; that is to say, this outerwear was inherently deprived of former identity and now collectively unified.
The project sends us to constant tension between personal, intimate and internal and social, communal and external. It is about social tendency for unification that consciously and unconsciously influencing personality. It is about the need for separation and disassociation from a conditional crowd.
