From 7 January to 2 February 2017
A solo exhibition stating that the human mental state is limited by the form and matter of our flesh. Our nature projected on a parallel universe where the body is being dematerialized and remains “the being”. Being aware of the existence of this parallel universe, does not imply that we know exactly and what it really is. Thus creating a myth and a human reflection of our mind.
One deny the fact that our own existence is lost and bound into a single point “alone in the unfeeling immensity of the universe, out of which one emerged only by chance” and we project our flesh as a material limit.From unit to entirety and from this point to the landscape, Sarkothymia presents the matter entering vicious circle in which our egocentric nature refuses to accept. Subtle forms are transformed within the limits of the human mind and the viewer is left with an epitaph of our actual physical substance.
A narrative derive from Osteotopia, Irene’s Pouliassi personal visual narrative medium of expression that presents an artistic view to decay and the narration of time of the human body, as well as a symbol of an existential identity.
