Project

Triptych "Macroworld" includes three art works with a main flexible idea of playing around a scale of every day objects. Thanks to a large enlargement the normal objects acquire back their sacral and mystical meaning.
The first work depict a pomegranate fruit and is called "612 seeds". It is this number that was a mystical for ancient Jewish tribes. This is how many bones and tendons are there in a human body, and the same number of seeds are in a pomegranate fruit. A pomegranate is also a symbol of a knowledge and a creation of the world, as if Eva gave to Adam not an apple but a pomegranate.
The second work shows an enlarged egg and is called "Genesis". This is an artistic symbol of creation of the universe and birth of a life.
In everyday life we often use these objects not thinking about a sacral mystery they hide inside. When shown in a large zoom in this art work they objects is inflated again with the meaning.
The third work "Stone" refers to the third stage of the existence of the human body, to turning to dust. From of ashes to ashes, from dust to dust.
