Ashkan Honorvar's Dissected Bodies
Ashkan Honorvar dissects, repeats, patterns, slices and dices erotic imagery to create collages that estrange ourselves from the familiar impact of pornographic scenes. These collages are at once strikingly beautiful though sometimes difficult to look at. By disrupting erotic images, Honorvar is able to make commentary on the symbolism of the body itself, as well as the concept of altering ones own body for commercial or aesthetic means. Honorvar lives and works in The Netherlands and Norway.
