Celestial Bodies, a Sci-Fi Adventure, 2004

celestial bodies - a sci-fi adventure.

"There are works that pay even more sensory tribute to the human organism, like ''Celestial Bodies: A Sci-Fi Adventure'' by the Brazilian artist Cyríaco Lopes. It narrates a journey through a fantastic world, which turns out to be the artist's own body. His nipples are planets; his closed eyes indicate an eclipse; his tongue, oozing out between his lips, is the lava spewed by a volcano." (Grace Glueck, The New York Times, 10-01-2004)
