This is an important branch of contemporary art that has its roots in the nature of human being and in the desire to modify the body or to show on it signs that link the person to a wider reality (community, culture, gods, myth...).
BODY ART #7: Uruturamaro
The idea behind his (her?) works is to take “persons” from the worst and most dirty places of the World Wide Web and to transform them in human-flowers.
Uruturamaro declared that he/she was inspired by some verses of a Japanese tea-master: “Even in the dirt, there are flowers”.
Uruturamaro artworks are published on some webistes and then erased after some days, they die like flowers. He/she rarely exhibited the works in art spaces, mostly on South Asian countries and even in these cases only for a few days.
Regarding the Body Art we have recently launched a new event that will take place on August in the beautiful Merano:
