From the duo exhibition ‘Hot, opalescent, thick tears that poets and lovers shed’ curated by James Chen (July 2016)

 A collaboration between Luis Corzo and John Yuyi, meant to engage dialogue on the issue of nudity and censorship within social platforms. The photographs consist of Yuyi modeling with packaging materials along with Matisse-like cut-outs, lacking any suggestion of sexuality or erotic themes. The materials do well to conceal the emotional quality and individuality of the subject, bringing specific attention to the beauty of the image. It also speaks of the manner in which we package and present ourselves to the online world.
