a new body of work in progress
Solutions derives from Mourier’s Mary’s project, her most recent body of work that portrays contemporary conceptions of femininity through the dissection of biblical symbolism surrounding the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene. Implementing the diptych as the overarching format throughout the series, pairs of photographs and sculptures address these pervasive but opposing archetypes of the feminine in equal measure and without personal bias, leaving viewers’ intuitive reactions and aesthetic preferences to construct a personal mirror that strives to question and redefine the parameters history has placed around the individual and the collective human condition.
Currently on view at The Invisible Dog Art Center as part of Wonderland, from December 4 - 28.
Mary’s will be exhibited in May of 2015 at the Caos Gallery in Venice, Italy, to coincide with the 2015 Venice Biennale.
