My personal Totem work was a mixture of complex feelings, which were attributed to certain animals. In Mexico, the animal totems are divided into groups such as visionary, protective, predatory etc. In humanity, some of us become victims and other predators, it is like Life’s game. Should this be so? We all dream of higher means and have hopes through the heart connection. Are we higher spirited creatures, which should be above this cruel animalistic game? Should our aim for equal distribution of all the earthly goods, be our primary motive in coexistence? Why can’t we cherish together all the sweetness and saltiness of this space? This kinds of questions were inspiring the process of my contribution to the exhibition. I begun with found objects. One was worn off cow skull found in Bulgarian village. The second part came clear after I discovered thick branches standing together. They presented for me the power of “Together we are stronger” and our tree roots.
We are the gods that are part of all… and all is part of us. We give value and meanings to things. We are the creators of our hopes and dreams. What unites us is our true FAITH, given at birth… before the church, the family or the society. This faith is in the spirit of all that connects us to the stars, to our ancestor tree blood stream, from which we can drink the golden wisdom. One HEART. No man is greater than other. By eating the animal, you become one with its spirit. Feeding the soil with love and care, shall reward us with sweet fruits and grain. Tonight I shall cherish all this spectrum of primary earthly celestial characters. Come join us sparrows, foxes, rats and minks. Lets drink ambrosia and burn out bright. Thank you all who supported me through this shape-shifting process, you know who you are and apology to anyone hurt in the process.
