Adriana Marmorek | “Flower to Bee”
March 6, 2020 - October 31, 2020
For her fourth solo exhibition, Flower to Bee, Adriana Marmorek presents us with the clues for deciphering the enigmas of love, sexuality and desire. Her decades long enquiry into what she herself has called the “architecture of desire” began with questions around media and how the female body is wielded as a sexualized marketing tool. This path led her to then wonder about love and loss, which in turn led to her current investigation into the nature of love and how we have come to loose its proximity to the spiritual, the sublime, and the highly mysterious.
Marmorek’s search has transformed her into a researcher, an avid reader of post-modern philosophy and poetry, a seeker of meanings concealed behind layers of paint in classical works of art. In Flower to Bee, Marmorek bravely tries to unlock one of the many shielded mysteries of Hieronymus Bosch’s “Garden of Earthly Delights” and she does so by taking the varied flora and fauna of his triptych outside the landscape and into the gallery space. She offers her viewer a path of discovery into their own interpretation both of what the Garden’s message on love is, and their own notion of what it has been for them.
