KUTHO takes inspiration from a Burmese concept of merit. A common
ritual undertaken by Burmese Buddhists is to cover their relics with gold
leaves. Leaving a gold-mark is exclusive to male devotees for merit-making
towards better karma. Women, in the guise of an impure status, are forbidden to
approach. Religion and spirituality are two sides of the same coin that
sometimes play antagonistic roles. All over the kingdoms of Indochina, in a
similar way, monks/nuns are other topics to see the place of women in religion
To go beyond persistent
stereotypes, I think that liberation of the soul is an endless work in
I care about how an
offering affirms the idea of a next life and empowers us by being used as a
tool for that purpose. Gold and Religion have an ancient relationship.
The series talks about Power associated with Religion and the
relationship between the visible / not visible, cult/occult, and parallels
universes. I use the same leaves to seal my memory with the gold light, which
grace, I can not access, and post a question about the duality of human nature,
on those cultural orders that are such assimilated, that not seen.
