ANCIENT IS ALIVE



ANCIENT IS ALIVE is the solo show by Elena Aya Bundurakis that Metronom presents on the online platform Artsy.

The exhibited works are part of the series Eating Magma. Bundurakis, with Eating Magma, explores the relationship between living organism and mechanical device: the camera is used not as a common optical device, but more as a multi-sensorial instrument, also able to investigate tactile characteristics and olfactory elements. The images of Bundurakis thus guide us under the surface of things, under 'her own' skin and that of other living beings: particular and deep close-up frames show unusual versions and impressions of the artist's world, revealing its sensitive and emotional properties. In a possible post-natural era, in millions of years, the soft anatomy of multiform algae or mysterious growths will survive cyborgs and extinction of robots, Bundurakis suggests, with a use of photography that draws the viewer's attention to a tactile and material dimension in which the eye can be seen turning into a mouth (with the set of teeth).
