The concept of the project originated in my earlier experiments in ceramics lithography; in new ideas in collages and sketches; my personal experiences in a new environment, not to say, a different world which was leaving Romania for Holland.
The Ceramics Theatre is a project that is still evolving and constructing itself with time. It probably is a project that causes a lifetime involvement. The reason of its open-ended organization is the strong relation between me and my theatre characters, the actors. Some characters represent me; others people that I have met and known; or that are around me; yet others are simply creations of my imagination.
Strong symbols in these theatrical scenes are the strings that hold some of the puppets: control and manipulation. The appearance of masks and loose heads indicates confusion. Even if this part of the Theatre has a deceptively gentle and sensitive appearance, it also shows the roughness of femininity and a slight confusion of sexuality. It is a world of obscure lies. The characters are hiding behind their masks while uninhibitedly playing (with) emotions. The dark environment of the scene …. we keep our eyes half-closed and react in denial of what we dislike and/or don't understand.
„Body vs mind”- through its dramatically curved body, this work signifies the pain and struggle of still hidden transformation. The fear of non-acceptance and the regret of not being able to share real life moments.
