Les descendantes de Nyx

Here, I combined two art forms: the classical sculptures and the tribal and traditional art from Sub-Saharan Africa. I am spellbound by these boliw, power figures from a mysterious animistic culture. Even tough I am not acquainted with their original sense I feel a power emerging from them. This series of sculptures is my interpretation of this animistic tradition, giving power to inanimate objects, by hiding text underneath layers of paint, hair and dust found in my studio.
