one day, or century
in ten billion years,
I will turn into a desert
and I will perhaps be scattered
in a shaped moving dust,
down to oceans...
Sheila Concari (excerpt from Tétralogie d'une femme serpent, Harpo&éditions)
Born in Italy, Sheila Concari lives and works in Paris. Her visual vocabulary is rooted in both visual and acoustic arts. Expressed through hybridization and transposition, it embraces widely diverse forms of aesthetic expression, from writing and drawing to installation, video, sound and vocal media. She builds bridges between those multiple disciplines, drawing on a wide range of sources: painters like Hieronymus Bosch and the Italian Mannerists, poets like William Blake, avant-garde movements such as Surrealism and Futurism, as well as mythology and alchemy.
