«Madonnas of the Flowers»
My 'Madonnas of the Flowers' video deals with the dissolution of an ideal, the end of a phase of identity. My composition of this theme combines hollow aesthetics with the intangible sensibility of the cliché to produce kitsch. 'Madonnas of the Flowers' is my reckoning with a value instilled in our minds that tells us the loss of youth and beauty also means the loss of identity.
I sit in front of the camera, a steel garland on my head, a transparent fan in my hand. The light plays on my face, which is semi-concealed behind a gauze veil. I fan the music on – Madonnas of the flowers – sweet and transitory – with no tangible material, consisting of light. Statuesque and airy at once.
