Flowing Stillness of Bog Bodies

PRESENTED ON SEP 21, 2018
IN MALDEN @ VOL 1

The paintings Lidija Vukovic creates are shaped by the idea of Bog bodies, the ancient human remains that have been long preserved and discovered in Bog’s wetlands in Northern Europe, Great Britain and Ireland. She also integrates her experience with three-dimensional artwork. Through her work she seeks to connect the human body and memories, to represent the organic world as emotions still living within grass and branches. These emotions scream to be noticed and never forgotten. Nature shows the short life spans of living beings. But the dynamic existence of every shape connects us to the memory of these beings.

Bodies of Art

BY VITTORIA COLONNA
@ VOL 131 ON DEC 16, 2015

"Something really magical happened... at some point as she was painting me, I felt her story on her body, I felt her pain ... every time she put her ink on my body it was soothing my soul, it was healing.. this mask of color was curing us both."
 
Filmmaker, artist, performer and sea serpent queen Vittoria Colonna takes us through her creative journey so far which brings her to Kyoto. Here in Japan Vittoria and fellow artist Miki Yokoyama collaborate using each other's bodies as canvases in a performance that blurs the lines between the Art and the Artists themselves.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, January 1st, 2015.
