Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/konference proceedingBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review


The chapter will cover the poetic sentiment created by human meaning-makers as they experience, present, and represent the body on the side that is directly non-observable by the self, but constantly accessible to the others. Various relations between the hair and the skin, hiding and displaying of both as ways of presenting of the human back, will be analyzed on the basis of the painting Le Chignon by French artist Eva Gonzalès (b 1849–d. 1883).
