Mitochondries

Obsessive Disorder Of Mitochondria

Mitochondria: part of the animal or vegetal cell that transmits genetic material from parents to children.

Working on the accumulation of patterns and keeping her own obsessions trotting out, So! Paints her first Mitochondria in 2014. Since that day, she continues the collection she made evolve as time went by, trying to drain its initial form thanks to automatic fabrication. The minuscule world getting on to the ensemble, Mitochondria are imagined as inside landscapes, a colorful and lively analysis of the present fabrication of the painting, as if it was a self-portrait or an intimate exploration. Created in a kind of trance, close to hypnosis, from the color flat tint to the movement, Mitochondria, unique and singular units, end up building unconscious images, coming from their gathering. They become hypnagogic and are interpreted by the viewer as clouds can be when they create shapes that are obviously clear, just before disappearing, as a memory that changes as time flies, and that never stops evolving. For it’s really the idea that jeopardize Mitochondria: the memory and its transmission, the proliferating and essential lifeblood of the living cell, both unique and universal.



Elément du cytoplasme de la cellule animale ou végétale. La transmission mitochondriale est le processus par lequel le matériel génétique est transmis de parents à enfants.

En travaillant sur l'accumulation de motifs et le ressassement de ses propres obsessions, SO ! peint ses premières Mitochondries en 2014. Depuis, la série se poursuit, évoluant avec le temps, dans un automatisme de fabrication qui tente d'épuiser sa forme initiale. Mettant en rapport le minuscule à l'ensemble, les Mitochondries sont construites comme des paysages intérieurs, une radiographie colorée et vivante du présent de la fabrication de la toile, à la façon d'un autoportrait, d'une exploration intime. Élaborées dans une forme de transe proche de l'hypnose, en partant d'aplat de couleurs pour aller vers le mouvement, les Mitochondries, uniques et singulières dans leur individualité, finissent par construire des images inconscientes, issues de leur assemblage. Elles deviennent hypnagogiques, et sont interprétées par celui qui la regarde comme le sont les nuages qui parfois créent des formes qui nous semblent lisibles, avant d'immédiatement disparaître. Comme un souvenir dont la forme change avec le temps, et qui ne cesse jamais d'évoluer. Car c'est bien la notion qu'interrogent en définitive les Mitochondries : la mémoire et sa transmission, la sève essentielle et proliférante de la cellule de vie, à la fois universelle et unique.
