RES EXTENSAAccording to the philosopher Merleau-Ponty, both the surface of our body and the textures of the objects that surround us are part of a same 'extended flesh', where all the elements intertwine and remind each other. The work Res Extensa explores the connections between the body and the space through traces of rituals, weather they are religious or simple and intimate daily actions. The bodily quality of the religious space, as place constantly marked by bodies that perform and repeat rituals over and over again echoes the spatial quality of our skin, a surface that 'records' the signs of our daily rituals. Rituals that we often unconsciously bring on ourselves.
