For me, nudity represents the philosophical human; as soon as you add clothes, you put someone in a social, religious, or geographic category. Like Leonardo da Vinci’s [Vitruvian] man, the naked female for me is the symbol of the human, and not much linked with sexuality. It’s a problem that we leave nudity to the porno industry, and then they have a hold on it. If you look at older art, the figures are always nude. Of course, older art has that abstract step of sculpting the nude or painting it; with video, people take it literally.
