Luigi Rodriguez, born in Caracas, Venezuela lives in Madrid, Spain where he explores identity through collage, sculpture, writing, painting and design.
Luigi explains the work by saying, “I’ve always been intrigued by orgasms so I decided to study mine. To experiment by putting myself in an unusual position to try and understand more about who I am as an individual. Creating this sculpture has been a great journey of self discovery. To create myself physically and to deconstruct myself mentally. And this exploration led me to a conclusion: during orgasm we lose ourselves in the moment, removing all layers of fear, judgment and ego, revealing a face that represents who we are in the most pure state. So I created “Pure Luigi” – A Hyper Realistic Sculpture of my face during orgasm.”
