Intra Carnem is a quest for shapes derived from animal anatomy, with the aim of chimerising a human body.
Diploma project (2021) by Elena Najdovski
From mythology to the most morbid genetic malformations, the chimera intrigues. This form of hybridisation between humans and animals has always been a fantasy for humans in search of the extraordinary.
From palaeontology to bodily performance, the experiment exploits several mediums to create a half-graphic, half-scientific universe and give life to a new species. The lifeless body of animals is manipulated to extract shapes that will become objects that can be worn on the human body. The silhouette is redefined; identity becomes exceptional.
