The Three Gorgons

Statement

The series was made for the exhibition "Basalt-Volcanic Bijoux" , curated by Jean-Yves Le Mignot.

The inspiration for the series comes from the three gorgon sisters in the Greek mythology.

The three gorgons had a gaze that was so terrifying that anyone who looked upon them immediately turned to stone.

While creating the series, I was contemplating upon Rainer Maria Rilke immortal words from the Duino Elegies, "Beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror". The series brings together the Greek myth, along with personal narratives and myths of beauty, power and deadliness.
