Descrizione Opera / Biografia


ARTWORK DESCRIPTION>
Mesmerised by the beauty of the famous late mediaeval six-part tapestry series – The Lady and the Unicorn which is on display at the Cluny Museum in Paris, Nena Skoko Snezana revisits her past love experiences using the code of their symbolic meanings. They depict five senses – smell, taste, hearing, sight and touch, as well as the Lady’s “sole desire” – the desire to get to know the truth of love.
Relying on the documentary archive (letters kept, postcards, photographs…), Nena translates love messages and declarations onto textile by way of embroidery, printing, tufting, weaving, patchworking, hand papermaking, plant braiding, chocolate pouring…The sixth installation, My Sole Desire, is the sublimation of Nena’s love experience.
