Benjamin Hurni – Corpus Muros
by Benjamin Hurni
Corpus Muros is a project that aims to transpose the impact that social pressure exerts on people in today’s society onto the human body. Uniform-looking humanoïd figures devoid of any specific characteristics are then born. They become human-shaped shells for the soul they contain. Envelopes to protect ourselves from one another and to appear as perfect as possible. As a consequence, the body becomes a representation of the psychological state, alternatively a battlement and a proud sculpture.
