Opening Night Pics from Memento Mori at ThinkspaceJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 15 Jul 2009
Stella Im Hultberg's show, Memento Mori, featured beautiful elongated figures and faces that evoked a sense of transcending spirituality.
In Stella's words:
“I think i was thinking about dualities - being that “memento mori” means be ‘mindful of death’, there being death, thus life, how they have a little bit in each other. like ouroboros, the snake eating its own tail.
it seems to be the case with many opposites - female and masculine, light and dark, yin and yang. i'm interested in the identity that gets lost or found in the penumbra where the dualities get obscured and overlapped. bones and flowers are similar that way, they seem to contain both immense frailty and amazing strength, so i keep coming back to them - same with female body.”
