Event Details

@Subsidiary_Projects is thrilled to present 'Making Meaning: The Monolith And The Object Of Worship', a solo exhibition by Italian artist Maria Positano.


"My recent work explores objects of worship and how they hold a life and a presence of their own. I have been analysing symbols, unknown relics, objects of veneration and power, rituals and myths, monoliths…etc.


I am mainly focused on artefacts and monoliths as symbolic containers, objects of veneration and mystery. Looking at the layering of symbolic meaning projected onto the object of worship, which turns the inanimate matter into The Icon. The object, as a result of an alchemical process, or sciamanic investiture, becomes a representation of the human strive to unconceal the unknown things. "
