Hold on to who I am – raphaela Vogel webquest

"Who’s holding on to me," Raphaela Vogel, a German artist who was born in 1988 in Amsterdam, is currently living and working in Raphaela. Raphaela’s works are located in the encounter of sculpture, video device and performance, and is characterized by a keen study of the relationship between body and space. One of the features of Raphaela’s video works is the interaction between the artist (usually in the main role) and the camera operated by her. Although she is the subject and object of the lens, the two play different roles. Solo exhibition "In festen H?" her solo show "In festen H" was held at the Motorenhalle Gallery in Dresden not long ago in nden. The title of the exhibition "In festen H" means to be grasped by one hand, perhaps for security, perhaps for control; it is the colloquial expression of "love" in german. The kings of the beasts lay down on their hind legs, as if they had been slaughtered. Like all rulers, lions are lonely. But the king of the bronze beasts is not only copied, but in fact more like a clone. Their bases are pressing each other, and they are at the top of their hips rather than their heads. Bronze claws hold two snakes, they form a triangle of Pyramid. This may be the personification of Skylla and Charybdis – a symbol of heresy, poison, conflict, and sin. Forming a straight line with the cross section of the space, but the lion may be more reminiscent of Dresden than any other animal – unable to raise its claws in the face of real danger. However, when this behavior is completed, the lion itself becomes the victim of the force that drives them. The soil and other residues from their ordinary existence adhere to them. Even worse is the lion was used to imprison the prisoners shot in trouble, these ball is fixed on the nose, nose rings are usually much lower than the lion and the status of associated animal, such as a cow or a bear. The ball has been insulted by the lion pulled lower position. It is also more than: their throat is not proud roar, but timid and hesitant voice. The instrument is not used here people imagine: in fact they represent the voice of the snake spit out the letter, and the name of this song is more ironic – "long live, we are still alive" (Hooray we, are still alive). Raphaela’s works are often located in the meeting of the sculpture, the image device and the performance, and is characterized by a keen study of the relationship between the body and the space. This is also closely related to the use of digital technology by artists (such as projectors, scanners, mobile cameras, remote control aircraft, etc.). T相关的主题文章:
