In the centre of the project NOBODY we see „THE HUMAN BEING“. By visualizing the human body, art questions society within the fluctuation of physical presence and abstract values, community and individualism, culture and limitation. If confronted with the steady and rapid conditions and requirements of the global world, the human being, according to the artist, is thrown back to himself, seeking his own place in this world.

Nomadic life is inherent to the existence of artists. Not staying in one place permanently has become an essential feature in the life of many artists today, either because of economic pressure or because of business reasons, or other inner impulses. Departing and arriving, being open for new experiences without losing his own identity have all been crucial factors for the personal development and the art of Vinicio Bastidas. His works are biographical and nevertheless universal. An ever repeating topic is the human flesh – body and organs – our inner self. The Feast bears all essential elements of the work of this artist, who was born in Ecuador. It focuses on the meal as essential to human conviviality. People enjoy, they open themselves, they are part of a group and give up a part of themselves. The precise anatomic studies of organs, bones, nerves and muscles on one-way plates point to the complexity of the human body and also to its fugacity.
