Immagini Ambigue

De Hermine van Bers Beeldende Kunstprijs Editie Maastricht, 2019

Installation / 2019 / 20inch screen with loop HD video, no audio, 4:22 / embroidery on textile.

In the installation two elements are combined: footage of ReliMarkt, a store in Hoensbroek that sells and rents catholic imagery and objects and a reproduction of the altar piece found in the Sint Martinus church, Maastricht.
In the work I relate the ambiguous image of two peacocks that can be seen as eyes with the ambiguous position of a religious object displaced from its original context.
