Mixed Media Planet with Roots: 'Fons et origo #5' (Source & Origin)

2017

About

Fons et origo, which in Latin means Source and Origin, includes 8 wall-sculptures. These circular shapes sprout long roots in delicate hand-cut formations. Some of the roots have tiny metal-wire structures attached in the back which allow for a firmer shape. Angelica starts by taking pictures of her own paintings (ink and acrylic on photo paper), then digitally adjusts and layers colors, and prints the final images using archival pigment and different types of photographic paper to create desired optical effect. Sometimes she re-prints the same image in layers several times to get a very saturated color (like in Fons et origo #3). ‘Our present existence is just a cosmic blink. I am trying to hear the beat of the cosmos within myself, the primordial force, to sense the interconnectedness with nature, with all the powers and energies of the universe. To go beyond a sense of separation and to be able to cherish the universality that is implied by our interdependence. Inspired by the times in which the Great Mother was the Great Cosmic Soul (“At the very dawn of religion, God was a woman. Do you remember?- Merlin Stone), I contemplate on the origins of being which connect us across borders, cultures, ethnicities, and religions. Meditating on the original place of origin, reaching for our roots within the cosmos allows me to rediscover and worship our oneness while reconnecting myself to a sense of the infinite. Because beyond the roots of earthly life, we are all immersed in a living universe, in a cosmic placenta. -Angelica Bergamini "One of the functions of mythology is to present an image of the cosmos in such a way that it becomes the carrier of the mystical realization, so every time you look at it, the walls of space and time open out into the deep dimension of mystery, which is a dimension within ourselves, as well out there" - Joseph Campbell. Angelica Bergamini was born in Viareggio (Italy) in 1973. She studied in Spain at the Facultad de Bellas Artes of Granada and the Museo National Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid and holds a degree in Painting from the Accademia di Belle Arti of Florence (Italy). Bergamini’s research explores the symbolism of colors in an open dialogue with human emotions and natural shapes, while her experimental approach manifests through different mediums: from painting and paper-cuts assemblages to video and sculptural installations. Her works have been exhibited in New York (Tanja Grunert; White Box; BRIC Arts Media; Photo New York), London (Chelsea space), Paris (Galerie Arnaud Lefebvre), Stockholm (Färgfabriken), Hong Kong (Kwai Fung Hin Art Gallery), Milan (Pari&Dispari). Her work is in private collections in USA, Europe, China, and Israel. She is currently working on a video animation series based on a selection of her mixed media on paper. In the last year, her videos have been shown in Cuba, France, Italy, and Cyprus.
