UroAnna uro

Uro is what remains when the pomp is extracted from a bullfight, its parts deconstructed and examined as individual postures and movements. Reduced to its elements, the bullfight becomes a spectacle imbued with calculated bravado, performed machismo and the unabashed animal body. By stepping into the bodies of both bull and bullfighter, the lines between human and animal are blurred. Underscoring the importance of the relation between our most raw emotions and their connection to tradition, Uro transmits what might be perceived during a bullfight on a physical and visceral level. The contradictory nature of something that can be both gruesome and beautiful is communicated in a manner which opens a dialogue about what the senses perceive and how the body reacts.
A study of man vs. nature, masculinity vs. meat, taut flesh vs. trembling flesh.
