The Brain Drain is part of my EX VOTO cycle. They are votive figures echoing those that can be seen in the ancient baroque churches placed by the faithful as a sign of gratitude for the grace received.
Hanging sculpture and video projection.
The projection is a CT SCAN of the brain sculpture and is a journey through its mysteries. A becoming of cryptic ancestral forms that follow one another in a continuous generative morphing.
In fact, one day I wondered what mysteries the three-dimensional form I had created could contain; this sort of surgical exploration resulted in surprising images.
It is as if these figures were already present but invisible in empty space; the act of modeling the sculpture captured them and made them visible.
A trap for the unconscious?
