Constellations

2015
Embroidery on canvas
set of 12, 35 x 45 cm each

The sky is a space for contemplation, the sky is a space for metaphoric thought as constellations reflect and embody an ordered organization of the cosmos, which in fact has no correspondence in reality.
By appropriating/referring to both astronomy and astrology, sky observation and future prospect, the Constellation project actually originates from maps, and most precisely from migration maps. By abstracting and translating migration paths into starring elements and golden threads, this project aims at the creation of a new cosmology, that of human beings forced to leave their countries and to face the uncertainly of an unknown path.
Like contemporary cosmonauts, with no other mythology than their own trace on time and space.
