Top to bottom: The Mosuo Family, Equilibrium, Mamihlapinatapai

Body paint is costume to me, so allow me to deviate from textiles and share the amazing collaborative work of two Romanian artists Corina Olaru and Manuela Vulpescu known as Swarte. This project explores the survival of indigenous people in the 21st century through their symbolism creating art through body painting painting and photography.
"It was painting, it was drawing, it was body art and in the end it became photography; so many levels and so many ways, as a kind of representation of all historical human lessons that made us what we are today and what we can become in the future. All characters in the art works were “drained” of their own individuality for a better comprehension and fluidity of the narration." Swarte
