During 2011 – 2014 Ι spent about nine months in the country of Nepal. One of the strongest memories I kept from there is the dragon-like statues of the Newari and Tibetan buddhist temples. These statues are placed at the entrance, inside and around the temples to represent deities that guard the holy interior.
The necessity to work with the material I collected during this period and to create an analog of memory came out. After many formations and variations, I choose to use a timeline. It keeps the continuity and narrates the story as lived. The 4000 photos I made during my stay are a two-dimensional facade of my experience. In order to protect its holy interior, these photos were covered with dragon-like deities made of silk and colour.
The silkscreen prints are made of photos from central and North Nepal. The final result is a code of my own mythology, my own magic. The mountains were left unharmed, as only Goddesses and Gods can touch them. The rest of the memories we dealt based on whether they are of calmness or fear.
