Embrace



X-ray technology of late continues to be utilised in the art world to create innovative and surprisingly fascinating pieces.

The works of Saiko Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi capture skeletons wrapped in deep embrace, stripping human relationships bare. By divesting the couples of their clothing, flesh and skin the artists hoped to ‘eliminate the information of two people’ and narrow focus upon the essence of the human bond.

The pieces are cold yet intimate, the x-ray technique removing the sentiment of traditional portraiture to capture something far more compelling.
