photography, Kodak Pro Endure, matt, UV protection film, edition: 6 + 2AP About the work:In the series „Piercing the Mask“ Paola Telesca continues to explore body movements and focuses on theexpressive language of the Japanese dance, Butoh - the dance of the soul. She explores the variety of„images“ displayed in this particular dance. The emotions, vibrations and tensions in the surrender to thedance offer the artist the possibility to catch, penetrate and interpret human fears; the darker and the „grey“,naked side to each human being. These expressions are partially serious, fearful, „grey“ and insecure, andyet they represent beauty to her. „They are a state that constantly changes, a flow in which nothing isconstant, where two polarities seek a balance, a harmony. An internal struggle, a duality; the polarization ofblack and white, of emotions and feelings that search for a balance which comes and goes ... and yet it isnever permanently there“. Contrasts here are strong, defined, hard. The surfaces dissolve themselves in finelines and directions. They represent for the artist the memory; the traces of an ever-changing condition. Thisseries is produced in collaboration with the Butoh dancer Makiko Tominaga and the saxophonist Marcel Schmid. She finds here an artistic universe that she explores with joy. These works invite to meditation andquestioning. To this series of artwork belongs „Somewhere Inside searching for Outside“.
