"(...) maybe in our bodies there's a whole world of mythology? Maybe there exists some sort of reflection of the great and the small, the human body joining within itself everything with everything - stories and heroes, gods and animals, the order of plants and the harmony of minerals?"
Olga Tokarczuk, Flights
The one place we will live for the whole duration of our lives is our body. It contains us, it endures so much for us, and in a way sets the stage for our lives. We analyze three artists who look closer into what our bodies can mean for them.
