So goes the hysterical re-invention of hysteria by Javier Viver
“Fuck, he’s going to take up my time telling me about how he’s been a photographer since the 60’s…”
Charlotte Lybeer’s “Epidermis II” for APE is not about teletubbies or suicide, but it is about the veil or a practice of shrouding oneself called “Zentai”, which like all things post-taboo seems to be Japanese in origin.
”The whole city though I am only in a neighborhood seems capable of changing its face as I am carried through it offering possibilities for omni-architectural and urban planning on rails”.
