Body Modification: piercing, tattooing, scarification, branding, sub-dermal and trans-dermal implants. It’s a crucial opening and folding of the flesh, and it is in that sense, ‘demonic.’ Teeming with manifold potentialities, the body offers freedom and horror at the same time. In continental philosophy of Michel Serres, Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, the body is posited as constellation of forces, multiple, active, 'I am Legion.' Body modification invokes the crucial mingling of these forces and brings forth the 'third' plane of the beyond and in between, multiple and demonic. Alex Unku is currently writing his PhD at Birkbeck College, interested in philosophy of the body, ethics, fashion studies, chaos magic. He is published on historical, ‘subcultural’ and contemporary fashion.
