The Marble Index

UNADJUSTEDRAW_thumb_920.JPG

A homage to Baroque sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini, McCaig interrogates the detail of flesh made of marble, exposing the erotic nature of the representation of the female form seen in Italian sculpture of the period.


‘The Marble Index’ is a performative gesture documented in a deliberate lo-fi black and white photographic aesthetic, resolved as a two colour silk screen-print process, revealing the grain and imperfections associated with the body and the marble of Bernini’s studio.
