Abstract:

This paper aim to expand the concept of reflexivity applying it towards body. We will call it carnal reflexivity, referring to the heightened self-consciousness about the social value and diversity of meanings invested by subjects in their carnality, placing the body – as a whole or in more detailed parts – under an objectification process. In nowadays, the body can be socially used and valued by the subjects as an accessory (Breton, 2000) of self expression and self construction, something that we may intervene and change to be someone that we project to be. Yet, not all bodily practices in our daily life require the same reflexive density. The concept of carnal reflexivity implies to be aware of the distinction between bodily routines and bodily regimes.
On the other hand, the same body technique can also have very different appropriations among different social segments. In the last section of this paper, we will give the example how body practices as tattooing and body piercing can be mobilised as a body experience or as a body project among different youth contexts, under different kinds of carnal reflexivity, more mimetic or transformative. In fact, not all bodily experiences should be analyzed as body projects, ones that involve a strong sense of identity and an important existential extension in the life world of the subject. These conceptual distinctions allow us to understand actions on the body and/or with the body as processes, demanding different reflexive dispositions.
