The skin Remembers
Our skin is our first defense and protector from all of lifes assaults. When an invasive procedure takes place through our skin, it heals and tries to erase the trauma. But however pleasant or unpleasant the reason, our skin has memory and remembers.
Mnemodermia, as it is officially known, is a prolonged state of hypersensitivity in a particular area of skin long after an initial reaction has disappeared.
In essence, the skin remembers past sufferings and physically replays them later on in life.
I have taken a list of reasons from 30 family and friends, for the scars they have due to invasive surgery. Whether for cosmetic or life-saving reasons, their skin was penetrated, and each scar tells us much more than medical history. Nothing is just skin-deep. #skin #scars #contemporaryart #artistsoninstagram
