Bronze cast, handmade 24cm x 16cm x 8cm
“Ovarian” is a new work in bronze that finds its roots in my earlier works: "MINE IS BIGGER THAN YOURS 2010” By taking the female organ out of the body I transform something which is full of veins and muscles and present it as a beautiful object. At the same time, I question the contemporary model of a woman being always beautiful... always young... which is presented in many societies. This perversity strengthens women’s roles.
The small-scale sculpture is the interpretation of the female reproductive system, in which 7 up to 14 pieces will be displayed together in installation composition. The remake of sculptures in bronze finds its origin in the earlier pieces created in ceramics and silicone material. I decided to create a new collection of pieces in bronze to add the value of longevity that bronze material provides. Traditional bronze casting was always an inspiration to me and something I have always wanted to work with.
“Ovarian” is my comment about contemporary trends rapidly shifting because of the extremely politicized female body and how it is being abused by different European governments, media, and institutions. Depending on the country's political agenda, shifting from one extreme to another.
“Ovarian” is work not supporting any political views and it is free from direct support of any type of view which is to highlight how important nowadays is to always have a backup story for everything. It is a gentle manifesto of just being in silence surrounded by the material beauty of art and sculptures. Free from ongoing political propaganda of the OVER politicized female body and female reproductive system.
Viewers are free, to draw their own conclusions and stay true to their beliefs that the art is there to provide in the exhibition space.
