I'm collaborating, over my lifespan, with 100 different photographers on 100 nude photoshoots, developing together for each shoot a radically unique concept, visual style, interpretation and storytelling for a nude body — unapologetically my own — and in this process blurring the lines that still distinguish, when the human subject is portrayed, fine art from fashion, artistic from erotic or pornographic, conveying that the representation of nudity is absence of meaning and every meaning at once.
The most iconic photograph from each photoshoot will be minted to the collection, at a slowing pace, completing 100 nude shoots over my lifespan up to when I'm 100 years old or to the point where I'm too old to keep doing it.
For each new drop, different token dynamics are also experimented upon. For the first shoot, Rebirth, whenever the original NFT is sold at a higher price than bought, the seller gets to co-create the project's narrative with me by choosing another, unreleased photograph from the same shoot, that will be minted and gifted to them.
In the performance art live show SOMBRA [SHADOW], inspired by Alberto Manguel's book "The Library at Night", and in this homonymous photographic series, Hugo Faz and Teatro da Pombagira talk about the censorship of thought and of bodies; about repression, about judgment and necropolitics, bringing to life and shedding light on the artistic and literary works hidden throughout history out of reach on the highest shelves, locked or removed from circulation for their queer, erotic, fanciful or thought-provoking content. In the iconic live performance (available to watch on teatrodapombagira.art), the audience hears whispers of excerpts from literary works that have suffered censorship through history, while the performers take the space by storm creating explicit imagery that either illustrate the literature or disorient understanding.
