...)one discovers in the air what is actually at home deep in the water. This strange sculpture, with which the artist has reproduced a coelacanth, a hollow stachler. And yet stands for a creature that existed over 400 million years ago, and still exists today. ...) his coelacanth is a replica, admittedly not one claiming to be an exact copy, on the contrary, alienated, a plastic made of plastic, of epoxy resin, brown and shiny, and floating in the air instead of diving into the dark ocean. In addition, the artist inverts the world, lifts upwards into the visible, into the air, what for millions of years has been moving hidden in the depths of the waters, by the way, in a floating cloister, that is, a kind of walking on muscular tassel fins. ...)The water, here caught in the mysterious shimmering glass and lead crystal vases, water in vessels made of molten earth matter. Again shown without pathos. No thought of "Vasa Sacra", i.e. sacred chalices, altar ware, which the title of the work "Hand Reliquary" might suggest, but another poetic assemblage of cheap pressed glass, industrially produced, and other flower vases, all for ornamental purposes.
...)Here come three women, three dancers, projected on the floor, moving almost ritually, in temple dance, flamenco and hip hop as just movement in space and time, as a signal and in strangely similar postures and gestures.Conceivable that incantations flow in, as one suspects in early cave drawings fertility spells or shamanic hunting ceremonies, which also remained in the darkness of the earth when the caves were not illuminated.
