Glassworks #1

The project Glassworks #1 is an artistic object, a showcase that embodies the idea of a sublime nature outside our cognitive limitations and of the wish to embrace it. Thus the work functions as an oxymoron, the nonsense of depicting the undepictable. The attempt to embrace and encompass the world, the nature in all its greatness and beauty, represents the paradox of the impossible. The artist with her romantic gesture thus attempts the alchemistic and philosophical search for the universal elixir. Chemical flasks, through which mists and air flow, allude to the utopian process of the search for the 'primal matter', the enigmatic substance that is said to be hiding in all of us as a dark spirit, a pure core hidden behind chaos and raw matter.
