Christoph Zellweger
Most of what we see around us has been shaped by ‘man’; it has been cultivated, bred, transplanted or simply made. The ‘INCREDIBLES’ series focuses on the human body as a construction-site in order to explore the uncanny but also spectacular side of medical body modification and it toys with its psychological implications.

The feeling of estrangement and fragility of the contemporary individual are central issues in my work. I reflect on the many factors that are challenging contemporary living and how they affect the construction of identity and perceptions around the self. My work discusses the body as a place for social rituals and non-verbal communication (life extension, penis extension, chemical control of body and mind…) and touches upon issues that arise when aesthetics meets ethics.
