A/part/ness

AlPARTlNESS

Gallery “Beograd”, Kosančićev venac 19, Belgrade, February 2011.

The subject and aim of this exhibition was to create a visual opus where alchemical symbols were revised to express the contemporary female experience through a personal interpretation of archetype images of wholeness and inherited traditional ideas of male/female principles in the context of the process of individuation.

A-part -ness  was a part of my PhD project  in which the painting opus and theoretical analysis were based on analytical psychology that explicates alchemical symbolism as projection images of individuation. I investigated how the changing status and definitions of gender, female in particular, influence the changes in visual reinterpretation, explication and psychological identification with the archetype images of wholeness.
