HYDRAULIC ORGAN (2023)Hydrofeministic Fountain Installation in the making - Wrecking Circulations Ijzerblok Rotterdam
In this project, I created a fountain installation that was reproduced from my own breasts, The fountains in the Neptune monument in Bologna created by Giambologna in 1566, are the starting point of this current research. The sculptures depicts four nymps at the base of the Neptune, each of whom is adorned with a spray of water from their breasts. The power of the Papal State was embodied by the Neptune, but the mermaids refer to the wisdom and fertility of it. In the Hydraulic Organ project, I aimed to create a space in which the female breast was separated from its fertile symbolic representation. The scultpures were seen as living organs in a dark environment that fought against the eternal beauty of the Neptune Fountain.
