Zorio made a series of works around the word ‘Odio’, meaning ‘hatred’ in Italian. Here, a Perspex tube is designed to fit around the artist’s head, imprinting the letters onto his forehead. The same word is spelt in metal pins projecting outward at the other end of the tube. The apparatus could be used to brand the word onto someone else’s skin at the same time as the artist’s, in an action that would link their two heads. The three photographs represent another kind of imprinting, as a series of moments in time are preserved in the photographic image.
