Flesh Formation, Teratoma Series
In this piece of the Teratoma Series, Mario Klingemann explores flesh as prime material of his art. The stretchiness of skin mirrors the image distortion from the use of artificial intelligence. After building a photo bank of bodies, the artist processed his images to generate his black and white piece with adversarial networks (GAN). In this composition, flesh formations seem to compress as if forming a concrete block. The work’s aesthetic relies on contrasts of tones and opposition between firmness and malleability.
