The exhibition of Irena Paskali - TIMELESS is a multimedia project consists of three parts: drawings, experimental films and aquarelles.
DRAWINGS with mediavel charcoal, 2016
The drawings, by their format, are tipical horizontals drawn on paper strips 50 x 1000 cm with mediavel charcoal (before 18th centrury). By their style, they are clear, pure, distinct and elegant when the wood charcoal stands for itself.
On the exhibition will be also presented two experimental films, on 8mm:
The doors, gorgeous or easy act often how of the time like. They are silence witnesses to the past times, let suspect how behind them lived and suffering was.
The religious buildings in Jerusalem, Ohrid – are timeless
The woman: a child / a girl / a woman – is timeless
The water is timeless
The man is timelessly striving to go upwards...
The artist has created these pieces using her own blood as a material for aquarelle. Twenty-five aquarelles have been created, all in different sizes and themes, such as landscapes, portraits and still life, and six of them will be exhibited in the OSTEN Gallery.
The idea for this extraordinary work has begun developing during the project ”Hybrid-Liquid-The Art Force”, Workshop & Exhibition, Casino Luxembourg in Luxembourg in 2003, and has ended with the exhibition of her works in Hall in Tyrol “Mazedonien unter/über alles “, in Austria, 2004.
The message of the artist is: BLOOD IS THE MOST VALUABLE LIQUID IN THE WORLD!
