‘This body is no one's home’ is an ongoing series of analogue images about the sense of not belonging.
This work is the result of reflections about the disappearing of a personal self and the influence of the oriental concept that conceives the human body as a home and a temple.
The images are the result of in-camera double exposures, shot using a film camera and black and white film, then personally developed and printed in darkroom by the artist.
Inspired by the photo-sequences of Duane Michaels, one of the main influences on Cucè's work, the series is also a reflection of the famous quote by Virginia Wolf, 'I am rooted, but I flow'.
