The sea we are a part of, and that is part of us. Mental landscape – Political space –
Embreath Me, Sea.
Inkjet on Hahnemühle paper, 40 x 50 cm, 2021.
“(…) Christine Laquet initiates with a self-portrait with the sea. In the picture, her breath is condensed into dew and then turned into water. This transformation of the states of the water may illustrate her body’s encounter with the sea. An encounter that most of all could be described as a reflection or a mirroring. Coloured light comes through the window and draws us further into the exhibition. Accompanied by thirteen different shades of waves, we are immersed in the dark depths of the sea where plankton is mirrored in the stars, or is it the other way around? Can the seawater tell us about life on other planets, just like cosmic bodies tell us about ourselves? These questions, as well as the sound of the deep sea, has a cosmic tone going beyond the earthly. With this organic melody, we ascend to the surface again. We change perspectives and see the landscape from above. At a distance, the colours become warmer, perhaps because the materiality of the sea and the sand are mixing. Meanwhile, the surface glitters with plastic, which is imprinted with octopus’ ink and in layers, prevents the sea from breathing.” Tijana Miskovic
