Je météorite #1 – Je météorite #2

Two photographies printed on a perforated tarp, 244 x 220 cm (96,1 x 86,6 inches) each, 2017.

 


Je météorite #1

To meteorize, in Ancient Greek, is is to raise to a height, to ascend in vapors or to take the form of a meteor. Like a tribute, the artist is placing the alien stone in front of her own head, reminiscent of African statuary. The title Je mététorite transforms the noun into a verb, calling to a certain transfiguration, like a possible creolization of the human and non-human. The large photograph is investigating embodied sensorial practice to convey a shift in our perception and relation to the mineral world and the cosmos.
