Skin is the surface and the cover, which simultaneously conceals the body and shows it. It is the surface which separates and communicates between the internal body and the external space, a physical and psychological place of transfer for perception. A storing place for memory and identity, a site of negotiation for ethical questions about exploitation, species, cultural value systems and war. But skin is also a permeable membrane and metaphor for unstable limits of our bodies and existences.
