THE BLANK CONTEMPORARY ART
99 WORDS WITH ADELAIDE CIONI
To dress up as naked
I had to dress first
To ask myself what is it that I cover when I slip into jeans and t-shirt.
Then to undress once,
to think again about the pink of the flesh
as of something fake,
a convention, a cliché.
It can be true or false nobody cares.
I wondered what pink is.
I thought first of all it is to be exposed.
Maybe indecent, certainly vulnerable.
What a joyful color though, what sea of bliss.
To be in the skin. Maybe then, shame is in sex.
It’s in red it’s in black. These are the violent colors.
Here you really fight. You suffer. You are ferocious.
Immediately after that, shyness.
We’re all naked under our clothes.
Sometimes we are naked on top of them.
