While I was working on the project for my second exhibition, I thought that I have to show you the first project I made for my first exhibition.
This exhibition was named “Facing Art”. Its purpose was to present the various artists who took part in the exhibition, and who will also be part of the next ones. Everybody was free to present herself or himself as she or he wanted. Photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.
I chose to symbolize my character traits with personified fruits. The visitors could discover me through these colorful illustrations.
For me, the fruits resonate with childhood, because at that time I was obliged to eat fruits even though I do not like them. Every meal finishing with a fruit was a bad adventure for me. All the stratagems I set up to avoid to eat them make this bad memory into a funny souvenir.
Thus, fruits speak about me as a child and my actual character traits, old and new.
Each card is a square. On one side of the card is the fruity illustration and on the other side, the word which qualifies me.
Cards were attached to cotton threads, hanged as a mobile. The public could turn around the cards and/or turn them by themselves to see the illustration or the word.
Do you have memories which were supposed to be bad and which turn out good over time?
