Art Works Summer 2022
The border between holy and sleazy
Decorative elements, stencils, shiny red fabric, birds embroidered, white pearls and gold threads, white knitted fabric, a pair of doves covered in cement.
I check the meanings and the sympolism of the objects and materials I use. Symbols indicate informations :A pair of doves , as a symbol of love, purity and reconciliation. Turquoise is a color with meaning that can be associated with healing and peace, as well as truth, White pearls, considered "the queen of stones", a status of wealth and beauty. I use a cheap imitation and fake tools to talk about the real thing, a paradox which is loaded
with satire and criticism about aesthetics and ethics. In this series, there are sexual, religious, naive and brutal references, the relationships between the objects often create a closed composition that has a center and symmetry.
