Flow of Life is a multidisciplinary expression inspired by the menstrual cycle and the story of womanhood.
This organically grown body of work started with a seed of pain and led over the course of one lunar year to healing and understanding. The pain invited Marisa to witness and physically feel one of the core wounds of our planet, the suppression and misunderstanding of women and their blood. As she allowed the collective trauma to flow through her, the moon paintings inspired visions of the past and the future.
This feeling and seeing manifested itself into free-bleed paintings, a short film, poem, photography & more which you can explore below.
Flow of Life was part of the group exhibition “The New Ark” produced by ART CAN DIE. Occupying more than 650 square meters at River City Bangkok from Sept 1 - Oct 16. 2022, the exhibition featured 13 international artists who created works spreading a message of unity and connectivity. Under the patronage of the Embassy of Belgium, “The New Ark” was the first of its kind to be fully funded by a cryptocurrency and its community.
The creation of the "New Ark" follows Director Jacq’s quest to revive and reconnect the universal bond that keeps all life together. His ark contains 10 rules, not given by any god, but present and measurable in any aspect of existence: the universal rules of the sacred geometry. From the way plants grow or the human body is proportioned to the distance between planets and music notes, these exact mathematical similarities are a constant reminder of the universal unifying principles of life.
