In May 2008, I underwent a long surgery (6 hours) to remove excess skin at the abdominal and pectoral level caused by a significant weight loss. The work that is presented here in the form of a triptych shows the different stages of metamorphosis, both visual and temporal: a few days before surgery (right), less than one week after operation (center) and a little more than two years after the operation (left).
