OPAQUE 4: I Am Simultaneously Located And Divided, 2010 - 2011
I have presented the body as a source of revolt ! A doll-like figurine hovers over a surreal landscape made up of a number of tools and building materials, suspended by twine and toys. A magnifying glass covers part of a poem by Shelley under a magnifying glass; it is a copy of a page of his work: "Prometheus Unbound".
A viewer is invited to 'decode' these disparate elements; the image links creativity unavoidably to Romanticism.
Background reading:Helene Cixous + Mireille Calle-Gruber:'Rootprints - Memory and Life Writing' .
