Our skin is our own paper ! Origami is the art of folding paper.
The Skin and Origami share many common points. Corinne Dechelette had the good idea to create a work of art mixing the skin and origamis to pay tribute to the skin through Art.
Her work has an educational objective, which is to inform about the characteristics of skin’s physiology through artistic designs: origamis. It targets both insiders, who can recognize the characteristics of skin’s physiology, and a more general public, so people can discover its unsuspected complexity. Foldings in the form of origamis show the skin’s characteristics based on pictures in different magnifying powers.
This work, which was the subject of the Japonismes 2018 program, has been exhibited on several occasions, in particular at ESDR 2019 in Bordeaux and EADV 2019 in Madrid.
The Cosmétothèque is delighted to make you discover and share this work.
