New Life For A Skeleton

By​ Jean De Ardoise

Hi, I'm 39 years old somethinglikeanartist from Czech republic. In my work I'm constantly occupying myself with the dead. Recently I got the idea to buy human skeleton model - and I succeeded! I wanted to use it just for one photo but then I decided to make whole serial with it.

I created a completely new life of this skeleton by making installations with it in different places. I'm taking it with me to the trips in the nature in the backpack on my back. I have no car so it's quite heavy load but it's good for my body condition. It became something like my friend or my symbolic double. You could comprehend my serial like a parody on human effort to enjoy the life or metaphore of afterlife. But final meaning and interpretation it's on you!
