Paige Greco is a visual artist currently based in Brooklyn, New York. Biting The Swans examines dualities, like the exquisite color of a poisonous plant, the dense weight of a dull sword – but more specifically, of paradoxes within vulnerability. People instinctively conceal their vulnerability. However, art, especially photography, aims to present that vulnerability in defiance of an inability to do so ourselves. This dual nature creates a link between the medium and the body. This is also witnessed with how the body is confined to its skin, and the medium is to its surface.
How can we photograph what is unseen?
What is felt on the inside?
And what does it look like –
How to peel the fruit, to bite the swans.
