"Eros", by Marina Esbrí

Eros is the Final project by Marina Esbrí, on Degree in Design, tutored by Artur Muñoz.


Eroticism? What is eroticism? When we talk about eroticism do we really know what we’re trying to say? Is there an exact definition for it? It is an ambiguous word without an exact definition, as, for example, is art.

For this reason I don’t try to define eroticism itself, but instead strive to understand how we live in relation to it and how it is one of the interior aspects of a human being. Eroticism manifests itself in various ways, through sex and love, but also often through death. It is here that I answer my hypothesis: Is there a relationship between eroticism and death?

This project consists of two pieces. The first is an investigative work on how eroticism interacts with us and how we understand it, but in a social environment and in art. The second component is a photography book of my own work.

This is the most personal area of the project, and is born of a bereavement I experienced when I was sixteen. It is a visual essay in three parts: the individualism of the self, the woman as object and the woman empowered, three points that describe the process and the internal battle that I lived through.
