BODY is a visual exploration of the relationship between the mental and physical ego, through the stories of the subjects Elettra, Antonio, Sara, Lolita, Numa, Moussa and Mari. Tommaso Ottomano drives the audience into an anatomical and emotional inspection of the seven characters, investigating flesh, habits and secrets by delving into the most intimate relationship of human beings. BODY addresses the theme of sexual identity and the dichotomy between natural purity and artificial control, that is, the possibility of modifying it by adapting it to one’s personal desires. The body is the first tool we use to build relationships with others, it becomes an instrument or an end, it can be a temple or a prison, a source of pleasure or suffering.
