“Spare parts” is a series about the body, illness and aesthetics.
Werner Thöni questions the values of a society whose ideal is a young and healthy appearance at any cost as well as both material and human consumption.

People socially “unacceptable” due to illness or deformity are the protagonists of these works. Not the pathology, rather them themselves. The spares on offer are, ironically, ones you would never expect.
