He jests at scars that never felt a wound. Romeo and Juliet, W. Shakespeare
A piece about the copy versus prototype- copied/ repeated versus unique. The theme develops around two axes Art and Love.
Commencing from the prototype/ archetype Adam and Eve and traveling through history in search of the phenotypes of prototypes. The core example of the ideal prototype used being W. Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Innocence lost its quest through the symbols of the romantic ideal juxtaposed to the brutality of the first love experience. Waiting as the prerequisite condition of distortion of time between two lovers. The need for repetition and replacing of the ideal, hence the endless creation of ‘real’ copies.
In art- questioning what is a copy- since in a way, each work is a copy of another (or a collection of others) containing within it, its creator’s history and identity- unique style.
