The evocative and striking series Ecce Homo by Natalia Evelyn Bencicova, a 21 year old Slovakian artist, explores human vulnerability and behaviour within society as well as society's character within the world.Bencicova, utilising anonymous, naked, human figures, captures a sense of unease, symmetry and oppression. Writhing together, the bodies echo a desperate and longing need for contact and warmth. The figures are shown in sterile, impersonal and constricting locations which hold an energy that exude the cold and unnatural restrictions of the man-made. Despite the forbidding and cold nature of the photographs, this multifaceted body of work has a mysterious beauty which draws on humanity's imperfect inner workings and connections.
