End / Beginning
Chapter III
2015-2016


No Regrets is a 2-channel video that focuses on identity in the context of the human experience and psyche, particularly of a woman, presented in a dual vision of self. The politics of “identity” – or rather the question of who I am, who I was, who I can become and by whom I am defined has undergone a radical interrogation. On one hand there is a spectrum of sexuality, experiencing pleasure, pain or desire. On the other, we are invited to watch and listen to the narrative, an internal dialog with the self.  Project examines the vulnerable position of self and the need for a new beginning, a catharsis before tomorrow.  This self-conscious exploration is in fact an invitation to unmask what’s difficult and declare yourself free of those subjects.

New Beginnings
project is a series of videos, objects/paintings and installations that explore the concepts of unpredictability and transition that are embedded within the sense of yearning for a new start and the experience of impermanence. New Beginnings installation consists of a collection of torn tarmac pieces placed on painted metal sheets. Placed on top of them is an open book with its content partially erased. Few words left to read, such as “again!” or “there is everything to be found”, correspond to the notion of a new beginning, as either its starting point or its prediction. The video is a 2-channel animation displayed on two monitors placed opposite each other. The work references two main theories for the beginning of the universe.

The Sequence is a series of small silver paintings stuffed with polyester. The work is based on the close-up stills from the 1986 film Blue Velvet by D.Lynch. The stills highlight the nature of the uncomfortably dark yet dreamlike scene of the camera zooming into the canal of the severed ear, central to the film and its very beginning and the end. 
Imagining an evanescent landscape with its shadows and shapes, a hidden reality of sorts, the paintings take a biological, warped shape and capture the abstract and unsettling views of the internal world of a human body.
