Skin Jewellery

A series of unique necklaces in different shades of skin colour made out of silicone for posthuman Postbuddies, 2014

The skin is the border between the inner body and the outside. It covers your inner organs and protects them. The skin serves as a social border as well: if something is going under the skin without a medical purpose, the received attitude is a deprecatory one. The skin is becoming jewellery and jewellery a part of the body like a smartphone you always carry with you in your hand. Jewellery is a prothesis, a deformation, an Add-on, a body enhancement even if it seems to be a body restriction. Skin Jewellery puts the skin over your clothes, expanding the surface.
