Vie-Mort-Vie / Life-Death-Life
The exhibition “Life-Death-Life”, will mix poetry, legends and philosophical thought, through photography and casts.
Vie-Mort-Vie / Life-Death-Life
*Who, the insect or the Human, was here the first?
*What is the origin of the world?
*To what extent are life and death connected, linked, inseparable and necessary one for each other, as well as maintaining the perfect cycle?
*Did you know that Norway is not only the land of Trolls, Huldras, Krakens, Vikings, and other beings known of the folklore, but also the shore of Mermaids?
*Finally, could you imagine that the preservation of Mermaids was THE key to the preservation of our environment?
Whether you believe or not, the theory of evolution, mentioned by Darwin, thought-provoking, and may even lead us to focus on more current topics, such as the destruction/preservation of our environment and its connection to the survival of the human race ..
Due to our artwork, we will try to best illustrate the interconnection between the fact that we are insect / animal, and that, therefore, they are themselves an extension of humanity. Rummaging in the legends, the mermaid would therefore be the perfect representation of this evolution, being visually specific (half-woman, half-fish ===> perfect representation of Darwin's theory implying that we come from the evolution but also that we are this one). Thereby preserving the environment, we preserve the insect and animal life, and therefore the life of our own race.
It is through this art project, that I will try to bring my thought, mixed with the one from Olya OFlynn. Thinking that we would like to expand, share, and enrich through an exhibition in one of Tromsø museums and/or gallery (Norway), in 2014. An exhibition which will mix human casts, entomology, and art photography.
And it is through to your donations, that together, we can achieve it! Help us to preserve the last Mermaid! Help us to maintain the cycle of evolution! We count on you, and the last Mermaid, is counting on you too!
Waar dient de collecte voor
As you know, it is not easy to preserve a woman. So when it comes to a half-woman, half-fish, it requires even more effort and maintenance!
The fund raising will therefore finance some stages of the project, specifically:
*The set design for the staged photographs: 2200€
* The making of a decent outfit, evolutive and artistic for the last Mermaid: 1600€
* The artistic material, lacking the realization of casts: 2500€
* The (really high) cost of shipments from France to Norway included in each category.
If your generosity would go beyond the amount fixed in our found raising, it will help us to expand our art exhibition project on larger and different aspects! This is the minimum required for the exhibition. Note that for each of the participating amounts, we offer counterparties! Although participatory amounts are limitless, counterparties, those, however are, then be the first to support our project! Thanks to all of you and see you in 2014 in Tromsø!
