Ioana Sisea – We are both to blame but it’s more your fault
June 29, 2019 - September 6, 2019
Opening at Jecza Gallery – Saturday, June 29, 8pm
Curator: Carmen Casiuc
“We both are to blame, but it’s more your fault”
is a series of works made out of soap.
”Starting from a personal archive of messages kept in a diary, I analysed the dilution process as a way of deleting memories. The texts are written on blocks of soap and signify an exploration of the psychological process of altering emotions. Past dialogue fixed in the mind is now fixed on soap, a material easier to handle than one’s own thoughts.
“I told you I love you, but I exaggerated”
“From one to ten I love you seven-eight’’
“You’re not good enough but you can change”
The soap is placed on generous and almost surgical tables, covered with a fine layer of water. In this way, the melting process (associated with cleaning or disappearance) can begin. The words on soap represent the reverse of a mantra, they are the things you try not to think about, but inevitably, they become assimilated in our emotional structure’.’
