Luan de Lima

The Egocentric



"As my past hunts my body and mind, I shall clean it and rise a new self, where my body and mind doesn't belong to anything or anyone else..."



Society is a fabric of shaped behaviour. Have we ever been ourselves without fearing what others would think about us? A naked body and its memories in an empty space.

THE EGOCENTRIC is a work in progress dealing with a body and its memories of what it was and what it wants to be. Inspired by Egon Schiele's self-portraits and the deformation of his paintings to reconquer the form of the body to a new birth, THE EGOCENTRIC embraces its path to discover a new self.
