23 + 3 = 26

2 – The perfect pair.

3  (2+1) – The perfect pair with the intromission of a “foreign body”. Number of the Holy Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

6 – Imperfect number, that did not reach perfection, number 7. In the Apocalypse it is repeated three times, and therefore the number of the Beast is 666.

23 –  2(X)3= 6

23 + 3 – Turning the “Perfect Chain” into “Imperfect” by the intromission of 3 different elements.

A sequence of 23+3 rings, all shaped in the hands of the artist, acquiring her identity for the fingerprints, shape and size of her fingers.

As if a cover/case for the user’s finger, working as a “second skin”, thus requiring an intimate and direct contact between the artist and the carrier.

It is, however, a foreign body that, despite seeming skin and of totally fitting the carrier, is an object “beyond the body” and an imposition by him accepted.

Exhibited at
