From the preface by François Cheval:
" Lucile Boiron explores and exhausts fragments of flesh, these moments when human nature appears for what it is, that is, perishable. Far from making an inventory of the feeling of revulsion, she questions the body’s biological truth, and attempts a photographic answer to the issue of good and bad taste.
Bodies, to which we no longer pay attention, here remind us of their true condition: territories where states are shared, yet unique, bearing traces of stories that the skin alone is able to understand. "
The series is the recipient of the « 2019 Libraryman Award » which lead to the publication of this photobook.
Please note this book is now sold out by the publisher.
For additional context about the series, you can find a short interview (in French) with the artist on the website L'Observatoire.
