KUTHO series : Variation Portraits. Title: Boy with turban.
Gold and Religion. an ancient relationship. KUTHO takes inspiration from a Burmese concept of Merit. A Buddhist ritual practiced at some pilgrimage sanctuaries of Indochina where men cover their relics with gold for a better Karma. Layers of centuries covering what lies beneath until losing shape. I use the same leaves as a stamp in my memory of the light reflecting those men who can touch the sacred. A grace that we women are forbidden to access.
The series talks about religion associated with power and the relationship between the visible -not visible, cult-occult, and the parallels universes. I'm interested in how an offering affirms the idea of the next life and empowers us by being used as a tool for that purpose.
These interventions are aimed at interrupting expectations and expanding our interactions with the photograph and its meaning.
