+ For me, the
nude body is like a raw material.. another artist might use oil or clay. I love
the fact that, en masse, it can be turned into an infinite number of shapes or
abstractions, while the setting I choose.. rural, urban, indoors or out.. is like
+ Im in between an installation artist, video artist
and photographer. And when you work with nude bodies, youre immediately
called a pornographer or a fashion photographer.
+ I'm trying to create
flesh architecture. I aim to get a sculptural feel for groups of bodies, as well
as create performance art.
+ I just create shapes and forms with human
bodies. It's an abstraction, it's a performance, it's an installation. So I don't
care how many people showed up. All I know is that I filled up my space.
+ The body represents beauty, love and peace. There was a lot of beauty and energy
in the people today.
+ What a moment for the Mexican art scene. I think
all eyes are looking south from the United Sates to Mexico City to see how a country
can be free and treat the naked body as art. Not as pornography or as a crime,
but with happiness and caring. (said after a successful event in Mexico that attracted
more than 17,000 people to take off their clothes for a Tunick photo)
+ It never ceases to amaze me when ordinary people get into the spirit of what
I'm doing. It's pivotal to my art.
