Eva Petrič: Now you go on with the story…

Exhibition at the Handels Verband, Vienna, Austria, Sept. 2007

 

 

Now you go on with the story…

     

      Money decides not to be a toy anymore. She opens the tin box…

Outside her box Money catches herself inside a spider's web… But Money tempts a butterfly to trade places with her…She wants to fly as high as a bird; she tries to catch the wind… But Money's weight holds her down…

     In spite of her feet still being on the ground Money is full of desire… She wants to move like lightning… She jumps into the ocean and becomes a gold fish. From up above a star looks down at Money. "Become something useful," she advises Money.

     Money catches a wish from the star… Money transforms into a rose, but thorns prick her… She becomes a chery tree, but birds nibble at her…

    Money looks into her past… She goes to sleep and hopes to wake up again as a toy…

 

      For me, my work is about telling a story, exposing the defined and the undefined, the obvious and the hidden, the figure and its shadow.  I use pink, blue, green, yellow and orange in the light outside the dark room to free the figure from its shadow. No longer in a war of tug and pull, each is granted a life of its own. They wait for me to join them back together; a story they offer in return.
