About The Artwork

Ink, Spray paint and Marker on canvas 92H x 73W x 2 cm (36,22H x 28,74W x 0,78 in). Ships in a box. 'Memories Of A Blue Ocean' is an abstract interpretation of our planet and oceans representing a clear and blurred double vision. Which could mean forgetfulness and memory in a state of contemplation. My interest in climate issues is represented here by the contrast between the ethereal and light background that would be forgetfulness and the precise and graphic organic lines that would be the memory. As Christian Boltanski said, "Forgetfulness is stronger than memory," that is, the human brain is better able to forget than to remember. At the moment we can ask ourselves whether it is easier to forget and deny climate issues than to remember catastrophic consequences that have already been made and repeated. The human brain knows its limits and often forces the being to remain passive rather than to act. The contemplative state facing danger can engender inertia and thus modify the vision of beauty and ugliness. So to forget the chaos the memory of beauty remains. That's what I try to paint. 'Memories Of A Blue Planet' est une interprétation abstraite de notre planète et nos océans représentant une double vision nette et floutée. Ce qui pourrait signifier l'oubli et la mémoire dans un état de contemplation. L'intérêt que je porte sur les enjeux climatiques sont ici représentés par le contraste entre le fond éthéré et léger qui serait l'oubli et les lignes organiques précises et graphiques qui seraient la mémoire. Comme disait Christian Boltanski "L'oubli est plus fort que la mémoire', c'est à dire que le cerveau humain est plus apte à oublier que de se rappeler. A l'heure actuelle on peut se demander s'il est plus facile d'oublier et de nier les enjeux climatiques plutôt que de se rappeler des conséquences catastrophiques déjà opérées et répétées. Le cerveau humain connait ses limites et oblige souvent l'être à rester passif plutôt que d'agir. L'état contemplatif face danger peut engendrer une inertie et ainsi modifier la vision du beau et du laid. Ainsi pour oublier le chaos la mémoire de la beauté reste. C'est ce que je tente de peindre.

Marijah Bac Cam is a French multidisciplinary artist, born in Laos (1974) with Tai Dam roots. She grew up in the Paris region and lives and works in the south of France (Gard) since 2006. Her works are preserved and exhibited in different countries: Belgium, China, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and United States. ____"My work focuses on the exploration of the surface and depth to my relationship to the world in different factors of 'acculturation' by gesture and line. I am interested in painting to drawing, abstract to figurative and conventional techniques to modern digital techniques. As a woman and a mutable personality, I perceive what surrounds me very much through feelings and emotions, so, cyclically, I express my different modes of expression and my gaze, under different states of mind and different degrees of intensity. Painting is a way of freeing my superficiality by the dynamic gesture and the contrast of colors. Drawing allows me to dig into my bowels and my organic cells and to feel connections and invisible inner networks. Abstraction expresses my senses, my spiritual emotions, and figuration expresses my primary instincts, almost animals. "
