Artist/Curatorial Note

The human skin is our portal to the world outside and our sheet of protection against it as well. It is not an innocent category rather it is coded with years of colonial history and entrenched within the beauty myth. Empires and industries have been built on the pyramid of skin culture that begins with white skin at the top and ends with dark skin at the bottom of the pyramid.

The artists reference several aspects of skin, from the personal, erotic and playful to its larger socio-political connotations. It examines the deep-rooted practice of skin differentiation and addresses the fragile yet resilient nature of human sensibilities and other sentient beings.
