On the 15th of December the Procreate Project will launch in London. The initiative has been founded to support and network with international mother artists. More than 100 artists contribute to the launching exhibition at the Women’s Art Library at the University of London. Until 18th of December the works are shown in specially made photozines. I am represented with the photo series “Our Baby”.
Our Baby. self with news. photography.
The five piece installation “One” will also be shown during the launch event. It is currently on the way to London.
ONE. pigment transfer, wire, ink on concrete.
I am the chicken and the egg,
I am the shell and the crack.
I am the nest. I leave the nest.
I am in pieces that do not rhyme.
I am in pieces that rhyme with
shape of a story. book pages, concrete, plant parts, wire.
shapes of stories, a returning theme.
limits and barriers define the shape. without them, no story can be told, nor is there a movement towards more freedom.
to see a story like this, as a shape, already is freedom.
shape of a story. inverted photography.
shape of a story. altered book, beads.
This book has been through water first and then it caught fire. It takes some distance to admit the beauty of this story.
How to explan the impact. Concrete,wire, polymer clay and other material. ca. 20 cm in diameter, 28 cm tall.
(Actually this is only about the first few seconds of the impact. Of a book, a story, a word, a gesture.)
May the story hold me, may it be LARGE and bear all of me, may it last long enough to define my FEATURES.
May the story hold YOU, may it be LARGE and bear you, may it last long ENOUGH TO DEFINE your features.
MAY THE STORY hold you and me, may it be large AND BEAR US. May it last long enough to carve out our FEATURES. May it give US NAMES. MAY it be loose enough so we CAN SEE THROUGH IT. MAY IT BE DENSE ENOUGH TO HOLD US FOR A WHILE TOGETHER. MAY THE STORY HOLD YOU AND ME. May it hold us. May it hold you and me. May the story hold all of us.
May the story hold me, may it be large and bear ALL of me. May it last LONG ENOUGH TO DEFINE my features.
May the story hold you. May it be LARGE and bear all of you. May it last long enough to define your FEATURES.
May THE STORY HOLD YOU AND ME. May the story be large + bear all of US. May it last long ENOUGH to define our FEATURES. May it give us NAMES. May it be loose ENOUGH so we CAN SEE through it. May it be dense enough to hold US for a while together. May it HOLD US. May it hold YOU + ME. May it give US NAMES. MAY it carve out our features. MAY THE STORY HOLD ALL OF ME AND ALL OF YOU. May THE STORY HOLD ALL OF US. MAY IT HOLD US TOGETHER. May it last long enough to CARVE OUT OUR FEATURES.
may it be a good story.
