Charcot's Holy Hystericals
2011, Holy Hystericals, textile embroidery through clear plastic, plexiglass, light,18 x 10" each
"The uterus is an animal who wants to engerder children. When it remains barren too long after puberty, he becomes worried and, advancing through the body and cutting off the air to its passage, it interferes with breathing, causes great suffering and all kinds of diseases. "(Plato) Women are suffering from hysteria, a term derived from the Greek word hystera, meaning uterus.
Later, at the Salpetriere Hospital in Paris, hysterical women are under the observation of the neurologist Jean-Michel Charcot trying to study the disease through hypsnosis. The women were photographed to capture evidences of their pathological stage during their crisis.
Charcot’s Holy Hystericals presents three of these photographs. I haloed women with a half doily to signify femininity, French culture and to imply the sanctity of their long abstinence. They are half-sacred, half-crazy.
In Japanese, Karensansui means “dry landscape”, as well as “mountains and water”. It refers to dual oppositions. Through its shape and the arrangement of the stones, the Karesansui garden is a metaphorical space dedicated to meditation.
The embroidered sculptures represent a personal adaptation of this type of garden. Three metal stones upon which is told a mysterious story expressed through allegorical features. Small icons are embroidered at the bottom of these stones to force the viewer to walk around the pieces to get closer to explore the subtlety of the imagery. Delicate threads follow (or not) a punched path into the thickness of the metal to reveal a blurred image of wolfpacks chasing their prey.
If the original gardens are dedicated to meditation and contemplation, my work supports the need for introspection by revealing secrets.
