Miroslava Ledo is a Venezuelan artist, daughter of Spanish parents. She currently lives in Paris, France. During her residency in our workshops, Miroslava worked on the making and editing of an artist’s book.
The project was inspired by the close relationship between human beings and nature, about what the artist calls “secret connections”. That unique NATURE-MAN soul that expresses a message capable of causing a subtle awakening of consciousness, restoring the ties of empathy and hope.
SIaLaVie (by Miroslava Ledo)
SIaLaVie (Yes to life) revolves around the appreciation of nature from various floating, wandering, impermanent elements, emblems of a fickle, ephemeral world.
The idea is that when unfolding the book, it works as a whole in any sense that it is read or observed (horizontal or vertical, as a book or as a floating work and / or portable mural), a kind of walking and permanent matrix of that rich nature and impermanent.
Implicit in the flow of each element, of each gesture, of each expression or trace left in space-time and the way they are imprinted in our memory and our feelings, is a questioning by and for future generations … birth, transformation, death, continuity or extinction endless movement or not? … where do we go? … do we move consciously or in the unconsciousness of everyday life? … can emotions such as wonder and melancholy make us come out of sleepwalking and go towards the search for a new harmony of common existence?
