Of The Earth


The earth gathers and shifts. From the smallest of piles one can gather in a fistful, to the churned soil from the foundations of a building, we are confronted with a temporal process. The soil will nurture another tree, another dream, another becoming. The earth decomposes itself it creates territories. It dictates borders and it falters into seas.

Butaforically, but also metaphorically, it is about chopped magazines (glossy ones let’s assume) whose canopy mortar becomes leather for anatomically shaped framings. Husked, easy-going and even kinetically, the faceless dames ‘installed’ by Stefi in the Simeza Gallery accompany a frieze full of narrative intrigues…” Aurelia Mocanu, June 2012.
