Mythical Ecologies (“Echo’s Sublime Sister, Echo”) (2019)
Speculative fiction, fantastical reveries and magical realisms… My current project is a continuum of experimentations materializing in a painted photomontage – a key surrealist technique that involves the collaging of symbols. The process results in theatrical spaces reinterpreting ideas about “mythical ecologies,” portals, time-traveling, border-crossing, the environment. Each image in my works is an insignia, a distinguished token: Horses are symbols of aggressive hedonism and unconscious desire; depictions of Medusa speak about ways society views powerful women; spherical juicy fruits suggest sexual gratifications,... The project investigates the correlation between mythology, ecological formations, and the way diverse cultures express their relationship with the universe.
