GEOGRAPHIC OF THE BODY

GEOGRAFIKA TIJELA

“This graphic works actually feature this journey into yet unexplored spaces of relations between graphic (graphic plates, non-colour, papers) and a body. Big amount of materials, graphic plates of large dimensions, that waited, empty, as tabula rasa for their turn to be filled up; all of that provoked both the idea and the work. Yet, chronic lack of technical tools has been driven to extreme through auto reduction. The author almost entirely negated and rejected tools, therefore transforming lack into advantage."

 

"Creative use was hence reduced solely to rèservage, a graphic intaglio technique whose materia prima is a mixture of water, zinc oxide and sugar. Smearing the body with this mixture (like a graphics` shaman), the author begun leaving traces of her own bodily existence all over the plates: arms, elbows and forearms, stomach and hip, whole body laid over the surface (as in proskinesis when humility, dedication of faith are demonstrated by throwing oneself at the floor), all the way down to gestural entrance into the level of plate.”

"U ovim grafičkim radovima dogodilo se je upravo to putovanje u neistražene prostore odnosa grafike (grafičke ploče, ne-boja, papiri) i tijela. Velika količina materijala, grafičkih ploča velikih dimenzija, koje su prazne kao tabula rasa čekale svoj red da budu ispunjene, iprovocirana je ideja i rad. Kronični nedostatak, pak, konkretnih tehničkih pomagala (grafičkih alata) autoredukcijom je doveden do krajnosti; autorica ih je negirala i odbacila gotovo u potpunosti, pretvarajući tim činom nedostatke u prednosti."

 

"Tako je za kreativnu uporabu ostao samo rèservage, grafička tehnika dubokog tiska čija je materia prima smjesa vode, cinkova oksida i šećera. Namazavši tijelo navedenom smjesom (poput grafičkog šamana) autorica je na pločama počela ostavljati tragove vlastite tjelesne opstojnosti: ruke, laktovi i podlaktice, trbuh i bok, cijelo tijelo polegnuto na površinu (kao u proskinezi, kada se poniznost, vjernost ili vjera svjedoče bacanjem na pod) sve do gestualnog ulaženja u ravan ploče.”
