MAYA ROCHAT, ShowerPower with U5

Maya Rochat ShowerPower with U5

Through her multidisciplinary practice, Maya Rochat handles photography and plays on multiple media, from collage to performance through video, to create new and enigmatic images. For the limited editions of the Centre, the artist proposes two variants: ShowerPower with Bermudaa and ShowerPower with U5.

ShowerPower with Bermudaa depicts the performance by the electro musician Bermudaa (AB Records) which took place during the first of the exhibitions conceived by Maya Rochat in the Project Space, A Plastic Tool.
Using the same principle, she reused a photograph of the work of the artist's collective U5 in the exhibition Protein Fix at the project space for ShowerPower with U5.

Trying to blur the boundaries between reality and fiction, the artist uses the shower curtain – on which she printed these images – as media for these limited editions. The strangeness of these colourful photographs transfigure this everyday object, giving it a new aesthetic dimension.

Pamela Rosenkranz «As Add», 2010

rosenkranz

Edition of the Centre d'Art Contemporain for the Pamela Rosenkranz exhibition, March 2010. Pamela Rosenkraz’s use of skin coloured painting on her sculptures is here used to emboss a limited edition. The skin of her hand seems to have melted on the paper. The result seems to contradict the Latin inscription that it attempts to hide.

The Latin quote is by the satirical poet Juvenal. It has also been used as the acronym of a sports brand. It has a positive meaning for the sport brand yet originally it has a negative tone: “You should pray for a sound mind in a sound body”. The mechanism of advertisement is here re-enacted by the sculpture “Firm Being”, a bottle filled with water that creates an odd feeling of revulsion.

Format

Inkjet printing and acrylic handprint made by hand by the artist.

Size

42 x 29 cm

Edition of 14 (+2 HC & 7 AP) signed, dated, and numbered on back by the artist.
