This research is derived from the notion of body in recent art, which may be thought within a concept of bodilessness. The aim of the study is to evaluate the answer(s) to the question “How is this bodilessness possible, if it is?”. During the study different genres of art will be discussed, examined and explored concerning both the researcher works and some contemporary artists' works, which deal with the ideas of the body. The works will be analyzed both in terms of their plastic language and by referring to psychoanalytic concepts in order to point to a way to show how the viewer/reader may experience this bodilessness as the consequence of these works.
