synopsis:

SNIBURTAD exists both as a 3D print and an HD 3D animation video. Inspired by the voluptuousness of the so-called 'Rubens woman', this work tries to create a dialogue between old and new. It shows us how new technologies can be used to renew or reinvent the art historical tradition. In this piece, there is an apparent tension between the round forms and the fragile structure surrounding it. Instead of being the internal support structure (endoskeleton), the skeleton is situated outside of the body tissue (exoskeleton). This only amplifies the effect of a bulging formlessness that seems to extend itself in space.
