KUTHO series: Faceless Buddha

Buddha’s statues are mass-produced in Myanmar as Buddhism is the dominant religion. The head is the last thing to be carved as it were blank slates waiting for it assigned visage. While a portrait does not necessarily imply a face, this Buddha questions the small world of the visible, as a pause on its doctrine. Power. Resignation.
The series talks about religion associated with power and the relationship between the visible -not visible, cult-occult and the parallels universes.
KUTHO comes from a Burmese word that means merit. Devotees cover with gold their relics to gain merits
towards a better reincarnation. I use these same sheets to seal this series. As a stamp in my memory of the light on those men who can touch the sacred. A grace that we women are forbidden to access.
