The art jewellery exhibition of Sofja Markarova HOMEOSIS: TOWARDS PERFECTION will be opened on Thursday, June 18 at 18pm in HOP gallery.
Sofja Markarova solo exhibition HOMEOSIS: TOWARDS PERFECTION presents the attempt to capture beauty that is beyond our grasp and understanding, to which the concept of “death” merely adds an element of ungraspableness and emphasises the impossibility of such an undertaking.
Through the dialogue between author and death the perfection of the Celestial hierarchy opens up to the viewer. The intended jewellery represents a manifesto of latent divinity on the basis of shape, chromaticity and substance. The perfect symmetry of the forms, the synthetic nature of the material, latest contemporary techniques and the use of a visually monochrome palette form the code of Sofja’s aesthetic preferences. It is a metaphor of godlikeness, which transforms jewellery into virtuality, into the prototype of perfection.
In Sofja’s work the necklace, as the most independent type of jewellery, holds sole position through such materials as polyurethane plastic, urethane caoutchouc, rubber, marble, necuron, silver and gold.
Sofja Markarova graduated from Estonian Academy of Arts, MA jewellery and blacksmithing and exhibited at Denmark, UK, Belgium and Estonia.
The exhibition is supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia.
