  • Iconoclasm – Iconodulism

    “Iconoclasm – Iconodulism” represents an intersection of “Iconoclasm” and “Idol/Totem/Fetish” in form of a variety of gilded objects which in the style of Buddhist and Hindu icon veneration, are layered with gold leafs until the underlying objects are deformed beyond recognition. Drawn from idols and totems of diverse groups of people, whether religious or not, the underlain objects are are destructed through the gilding process which is a variation of iconoclasm out of adoration, while the objects themselves transform into fetishes by enslaving their creator with the gilding process – the artist subordinates herself/himself to his own creation.
