Mise-en-scène using the semiotic symbolism of the body and the iconography of medieval painting !  




This work presents the motif of “Agape,” the absolute and complete love of God toward mankind, through mise-en-scène using a variety of objects d’art and stage art. The artist uses a language of performance that deploys the semiotic symbolism of the human body to reflect on the sinful nature of mankind and its desire for transcendence. Appropriating the iconography, symbolism, body diagrams, and images found in medieval paintings, the artist attempts to transform the planar composition of painting into a three-dimensional space. A new aesthetic is derived by converting pictorial images that used to exist in a fixed, planar frame into an eventful, temporal art form with performative and site-specific elements. The weighty themes inhering in medieval art―humanity’s desires, its fallen state, and the hope of salvation―are pursued through the meditations of the individual artist, yielding art that is both personal and representative of the yearnings of our contemporary era. The work is grounded in religious and metaphysical themes but finds a way to render these perennial themes relevant to secular life in the present, inviting contemporary reflections and reinterpretations.
