The installation made by Maria Cioată is inspired by the
Myth of Genesis and the angelological doctrines corresponding to it. The artist
considers that the elements of the world are part of the same broad fabric with
magical valences, whose invisible connections are visually suggested by
associating ceramic bodies, often perforated, with various other materials.
The filtering of light, the dispersion or the expansion of
the space are part of her visual language, when the alternation of the positive
and the negative volumes highlights the complementarity, but also the potential
difference between the parts of a whole. The works of art from this project
have network structures or are thought to be recontextualized through exposure.
In an enumerative logic, they involve the idea of detachment, which is not
fully synonymous with the ascent or flight, that is to say, of kinetic
privilege, regarded as a pneumatic vehicle.
Fragments of the networks know various forms, each time
placed in the service of meanings. Through the way they were made, feathers do
not send, for example, neither to birds nor to the idea of flight, but rather
to the unseen world, as the presence of the angel is rather suggested than
explicitly marked. The suggested revelation is regarded, in this context, as a
sine qua non condition of Genesis.
