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, Sophie Borneck 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.
