On the 22th November the Monkeys Bite Me! invites the andalusian sculptor José A. Faraco Macias. José A. Faraco was born in Huelva, Spain, in 1961. He started as a self-taught artist, painter and sculptor that has held numerous individual and collective exhibitions. Currently, his work focuses on the desexualization and naturalization of the nude. His project “The Body… An Inhabited Territory” explores the perspective of gender diversity and the main social transformations that occur in the social image of the body in contemporary culture. It is a multidisciplinary project that focuses on the censorship imposed on everyday life, warning about the social controversy of the future of bodies, highlighting the role of science and technology in the new conceptions of the body, life and death. The project is allied with an anthropological research work “A Hypersexualized Culture”.
