Mostly I am dealing whith images which are part of our consciousness, as written or visual truth integrated in individual or society inheritated as communicative memory. This can be observed in everyday life, in rituals or stories (fairytales, legends, …) which are part of our society.
I am trying to gather general obsessions of mankind. Patterns after which we can hide our intimate word but on the other hand participate in them on public level.
Beauty in this content is turning into desire in visible specter, but it is out of reach. This beauty is never discovered but always stays temptation.
In visualization of that content I am choosing different mediums, where the seen image must be irritated and on the same time attractive for a viewer.
“A lot of other things involved with or inner lives are just not being addressed, because they're not the property of any specialized group of people. They exist in each and every one of us. Love and hate and fear, the great themes of birth and death and consciousness, are age-old themes, the fascination of understanding them in a historical context, to see how different cultures dealt with them, solved their equations. They're unsolvable and mysterious in the positive sense that of the world, and therefore life-giving. Something that is not solvable and doesn't have an answer gives life because it propels one to continue with the quest. I get somewhat frustrated that more people aren't thinking of the great themes in life as being in the domain of art.”
Alter 'imagotelling' is an Social-interdisciplinary multimedia-based artistic action that explores the transformations of the fairytale characters in the present visually.
As regards content it follows the trend from tradition to the present and back to the essence of personal identity, developed in relation to the collective social awareness – which can sometimes be a trend attribution (male principle) or traditionally instilled (female principle), or at times a personally chosen principle of the illustration of one’s own essence.
