Censored Embroidery


“... I’ve always have been fascinated the human body, human corporalities, nudity as pure element of innocence/ escence. so i started explore mine, taking and publishing nude photography portraits of myself, my account was shut down..”.

I was forced to use collage and embroidery, an element typically linked to the feminine, as a technique and tool to censor my pieces, since the naked body was censored in social networks to advertise it. In this exploration i’ve Created a serie of pieces that lately I named: ‘censored Embroidery’.
"censored embroidery" censors the body in an opposite act, as it highlights the nudity that is meant for censorship with a color block as a main element that compose the nudity of image.

I see my artwork ‘Censored Embroidery ‘ it's a contemporary view of how to apply restrictions using typical embroidery techniques with a new meaning. In that way I start to censorship nudity to publish it using embroidery and images of nudity in mags as #bobmizer and documental photographic record. I can say that my artwork with embroidery is related to identity, and to my own identity, to show it or hide it, to exhibit myself, to remember, to remember with my own memory, with the memory of other people who are the ones who build my story”, In some artworks, meaning of censored face, is an analogy of consumption of naked bodies that lends itself to anonymous and clandestine consumption in social networks if it has no identity.

Censored Embroidery is part of Cultural Heritage Collection of MAMI Museum. Published in Artistres Residency by WET Prod.
