Wild Child continues Moman’s theme of syringes in art. The child like features are emphasized with the colourful “butterfly” needles that are used to create her hair.
Syringes are symbolic and provoke many different emotional reactions, mostly negative. Often associated with drug taking, syringes can, however, alleviate pain, cure and protect against life threatening diseases, and change the way we look and feel about ourselves. Our very existence can depend on one syringe, and they therefore deserve our respect and their place in the history of humanity.
STIMULATE THE SENSES : PERSONAL STRUCTURES EXHIBITION, VENICE BIENNALE
My latest sculptures made from syringes are currently on show at the Personal Structures exhibition hosted by the European Cultural Centre during the Venice Biennale. The show is a mammoth event and features more than 200 artists such as Yoko Ono, Marina Abramovic, Joseph Kosuth, Jeff Koons, Lawrence Weiner, Gunther Uecker, Hermann Nitsch, Dolk, Julian Opie and Arnulf Rainer. There are lesser known artists coming from diverse cultural back grounds from more than 40 countries and all are driven to present their own subjective, personal expression of their reflection on the concepts Time, Space and Existence.
If you are in Venice this year please go and visit the exhibition and prepare to be stimulated by the amazing array of contemporary art in Palazzo Mora and Palazzo Bembo.
The Personal Structures – Open Borders show will be on until November 26 2017
and is open every day except Tuesdays from 10.00 – 18.00 and is Free entry.
