Uroš Abram, ‘Body. Made in Me I’, 2011, Galerija Fotografija

…the series Body. Made in Me ironizes industrially produced commodities for mass consumption, marked with the tag of origin. It emphasizes the uniqueness and unrepeatability of the image and avoids at the same time the aura of Art: the image of the body even in my own body remains the product of pure optics in combination with chemistry − that is all.
