The following presentation is restricted. Viewer discretion is advice: It contains nudity and some academic thoughts

Underline These embodiment practices seem to occur in a playful way, either using the possibilities of the digital treatment of images, or with the constant and complex game of posing; the use of inter-textual references, or setting the images in wide and different contexts. What it seems a trivial practice at the beginning, becomes an elaborated process of setting a stage. We have called this practice “Playful Embodiment”. Which is in fact a set of different and interlinked practices where the body is central.
