Embodying a playful touch, Second Skin merges the physical and intellectual.
Beyond its tangible representations, Second Skin encourages a journey of introspection. It urges individuals to contemplate their intrinsic value as human beings, reminding them that they are part of something bigger.
Second Skin is the mirror of identity, reflecting the inner and exposing the outer.
In the Second Skin project, sculptures are known as WOMBS. The significance of the womb spans biological, cultural and psychological dimensions, allowing for exploration across the spectrum of life and nature.
Whether in the form of sculpture or installation, artist Zora Volantes is able to capture and express a range of emotions for all to see.
Regardless of execution, several themes dominate: protection and security relating to reproduction, motherhood and connection. Every WOMB is different and unique.
Each performance is highly unique, yet still stitched together by the desire to awaken dreams and clarify thoughts. Performance allows the artist and the viewer to recognise one's strength, courage, influence and even light-heartedness.
