Metamerphoses

  Through Metamorphoses I invite the viewer to meditation on the human existence. Each of the seven cases is an organic habitat, like a giant cocoon in which are developing other organisms, a real environment that protect and isolates, resulting in alienation and resignation of each element included. Live items are the subject of irreversible processes of decomposition, crystallization and dehumanization. The bottom of each work is dominated by the organic structure, structure/symbol( the smoke and the spider web). Smoke is purifying and the spider, as a symbol, means unconscious, laborious and shy, violent and regressive. The human figure is present in these spaces, closed and isolated, condemned to solitude and death. Feelings are expressed through the body gesture. I believe that there are three phases of human nature in solitude and transformation. The first one, the negation, the second one, resignation, the last one , purifying. I called my installation Metamorphoses- Lethe, because that involves all the change that means nature. Lethe means to bring forgetfulness. Lethe was in Greek mythology a goddess and personification of oblivion( forgetfulness). From her came also the name of one of the seven underworld rivers, that have the gift to make the dead persons to forgot the earthly life.

Memories from the womb

 

I think everyone remembers at least once in his existence, his mother…even the dead one’s. When it’s guiet or it rains  I remember…everything was like a sweer light, which I eat with the point of my fingers and with my whole skin. I was floating.I was flying. I eat then the light with the elbow or with the both knees. I was flying through the unlimited spaces with no boundaries.

                              But Not in MY intestins

During the project “ GEN-et(h)ic Games Generating side effects” , “De Fabriek” was transformed in an ambiguous laboratory. The function of the De Fabriek was as a research space for art intersected with that of a (semi)scientific research.“ During the D.N.A.  influence of  the crops, biotechnology and biochemistry occur desired and undesired side effects .The debate about the food industry is currently in progress, with the  all possible ethical and economic questions and comments.The project contributes to the debate about scientific , technological developments and ethical issues; it provides information, but requires time for self-reflection.”

Old techniques

 The Egg Tempera Painting Technique. (Painting Techniques of the Renaissance).

 The egg tempera painting technique was the main method of applying paint to panel throughout the early renaissance. As the title suggests the pigment is mixed with egg, using the white of the egg or the yolk results in different effects, the mixture is fast drying and permanent.    Egg tempera has been discovered on early Egyptian decorations and the painting technique was also used throughout the Byzantine period.   Typically a wooden panel was prepared by covering the surface with layers of gesso (made with gypsum mixed with animal glue and worked into a thick paste).
