Objects consisting of images of the body and of domestic implements become mounds that
are composed of delicate layers, one on top of the other – a topography of the self.
Computerized processing creates lines that produce images, and enlarge, reduce and
multiplicate images. They then go through magnificently precise cutting performed by a
laser machine (placed on pasteboards). Shapes are pasted on top of one another to create
mounds, topography, hillocks of a feminine body and hills of domestic implements. The
models then go through a process of molding. Casting material is poured into molds,
resulting in multilayered, twined objects. In certain cases, the shapes are manually
manipulated soon after being extracted from the molds, while the material is still pliable.
Multiplicity and layering are engaged in a dialog with the many layers of the woman, of the
mother. This echoes her complexity and her manifold roles.
