FASHION ARTEFACTS BY DANIEL RAMOS OBREGON

Colombian MA artist Daniel Ramos Obregon describes his work here: “This project has taken as a starting point the concept of ‘Outrospection’ initially introduced by philosopher Roman Krznaric, where he proposes that in order to know oneself one must live towards the outside, that is, to be experiencing life as one discovers and shapes oneself. I have appropriated his concept while relating it to out-of-body experiences more commonly known as astral projections, by seeking to represent – in a metaphorical way – the mind being projected inwards out of the body as a way of self-expression and representation.”

The collection of objects has been hand crafted by the artist out of porcelain body casts, gold plated brass metal frames that encompass the body, hand turned Colombian kingwood handles and vegetable-tanned leather harnesses. Resembling antiquated medical equipment and classic sculptural artefacts, the ultimate beauty of this series comes from the photographs which capture the unique interaction of the still objects with the individual from whom the pieces have been cast.
