Soapchildren: Soap is the material that i use to MAKE little children figures, part of of the installation project and main subjects in the two videoart pieces. The unborn children are worshipped in Japan in a temple lying on a pond . Every year, at a peculiar time, thousand of women use to go there to recall them. Bathing in the water they connect themselves to their children: (WIKIPEDIA) Mizuko kuyo (水子供養 Mizuko kuyō lost"memorial service to appease an aborted foetus") is a Japanese ceremony for those who have had a miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion.This practice has become particularly visible since the 1970s with the creation of shrines devoted solely to this ritual. Reasons for the performance of these rites can include parental grief, desire to comfort the soul of the fetus, or even fear of retribution from the vengeful spirit (…). Those children are not never born,but forever about to be born. It’s only a dimensional mistake. In a biological and evolutive perspective they are fixed in an eternal present. The see water, the submarine environment is the very ancestral PLACENTA:“She” will look forever after them ,preserving them as seeds ,preserving their eternal potenziality.
