Abstract [en]

BODY ANAGRAM is a number of hand stitched sculptures, a growing collection of mountable body parts that can be organized and screwed together in different ways. The process of stitching and sculpting bodies is metaphorically compared to the art of anagrams, wordplays. Their common reversibility between recognition and destruction is discussed. Psychological perspectives on intersubjective, as well as subject-object relationships are used to explain what can happen when people and sculptures meet.

How can common emotional experiences of relationships be embodied through human-like textile sculptures? This question is processed in video documentations of people interacting with the sewn body parts. These meetings as well as collaborations around the making of the film, “Your hands and their hands”, are explored further in this paper.
