The artwork is based on contemporary forms of haiku-style poems written by Anthony Bannwart, a Swiss interdisciplinary artist, and consists of the principle of an artwork being created by another’s artwork. It includes multiple hand-made bronze stamps, texts and photographs. Words are applied on skin by a hand-made unique bronze stamp casted by the artist himself. The result has been captured through photography as an ephemeral intervention on the skin.
All contact prints made from 4 x 5 inch paper negatives with an antique camera. Gelatin silver prints on fiber based paper, 20 x 25 cm.
