CATHARSIS




You know everything you need to know. You see everything you want to see. You have the entire world in the palm of your hand closed. Without the disclaimer "To be consumed in moderation," we scatter outside ourselves, for fear of losing something. However, the exterior is also part of you. You have to know, to understand, to confront and then make peace with it. It defines you as much as you define it on him. Embraces it! Assimilates it! And with it, assimilate the subject knowledge that you mediate. Make it part of your definition!

This is how it would sound the prologue for the video-essay (17 min) of Simina Oprescu, the desire to recreate the transformative path of a confused and exhausted subject, in search of restoring the balance. Although the trigger for the self-discovering need remains default, you cannot not perceive it, just because you know it so well. The strong advance of the outside world in the individual consciousness, excessive exposure to the infinite potentialities involved in it, are causing an acute feeling of lack of meaning.
Rebalancing is possible in this case only by shifting the search from outside to inside .The creator takes refuge in a world of symbols in search of a transcendent, unifying effect. By revealing the fact that the personal integration process of the individual is inserted into a global evolution, symbols tie the man to the world and helps suppressing the alienation and confusion.Rebalancing is possible in this case only by shifting the search from outside to inside.

Another center of interest is built around schizoid dichotomy between subject and object, between signifier and signified, between appearance and essence. Cleavage produced visual psychic level is invoked by dividing the image into two unitary image that runs in parallel. Fluid representations of nature and biological life intertwine occasionally in unified image, embodiments of the biological continuum of the great narratives that encompasses all changes, internal and external and requires constant rebalancing.

The return to nature and to some extent becoming-nature, understanding the human body as a microcosm of the universe and integration, methods of resistance adopted by the artist before the attacks on the subconscious. These trails, indoor-outdoor, exterior-interior, for the artist become a way of being. Questioning continues probing the darkest areas of the mind, constant redefining of reporting real, even self-triggering crises of meaning, become necessary to bring to the surface shreds of truth that resonates in the spectator-generic. In this case, catharsis becomes a creative process in which opposites working together to transform the individual from apathetic observer of his own life, to a participant continuing to be actively involved in his own evolution.
