365 / 2015

 

"365 / 2015 is the attempt to construct a daily self-portrait and to reach thereby a reconstruction in form of deconstructing of my body".

"My body, which tremendously changed during and after my pregnancy in 2014, now feels estranged to me. Sharing it with an unborn for 9 months and becoming a food source for this little life is a natural and also sweet process. Yet, it robbed all familiarity that I had with my shell that I used to know so well:  the always working and available canvas of myself."

Susanne Junker documented the change of her body after giving birth in 2014. As a daily routine she deconstructs her transformed body and posts this puzzle on social media. This series titled “365 / 2015” is a day to day process and a consequent reminder of ongoing change, an observation of ageing, a discovery of a new self, a recovery of degenerating body parts and a daily exercise to use familiar creativity with displeasing arias of skin and flesh, regards and moods in non staged ambiances.
