Beijing International Art Biennale 2015

Maria Dundakova © FARMHOUSE LANDSCAPE MEMORY „Touching the landscape“

Ritual painting 2014, of cyclic works “At Home” project.

Statement:

The pulse of life’s rhythms is stored in the tensions between the tree rings. The inside and outside walls of the house contain memories of people’s lives, seasons, wind, rain and sun. The artist thus engages in dialogue with the living environment.
Using cotton-fibre paper pulp, the artist has produced paper imprints obtained directly from the weathered wall of a farmhouse.
The Farmhouse memory „AT HOME“ project of cyclic works has been produced as work in progress between 1978 and 2014 in the form of soundscapes, drawings, paintings, installations, sculptures, objects and graphic editions.
She has further developed the „Touching the landscape“ STONE RITE ritual project in Nature Art work cycles at the Geumgang Nature Art Biennale, S. Korea, in 2006, 2009 and 2012 (see www.dundakova.net, biography)
