EDENS


FLORES
Edens explores the implications of myths, symbology and iconology in ‘primitive’ worldviews. Following Claude Levi-Strauss’ claims in ‘Myth and Meaning’, the narratives attempt to portray the use of myths and legends as effective lines of discourse in understanding knowledge. As much as it references myths and legends of a more ‘primitive’ society, the nature of such storytelling is a repetitive human trait that exists to this day. Kinez Riza attempts to convey visual representations of myths and legends in constructed narratives, highlighting the tension between fantasy and reality. Growing tensions between the artist’s rationale and intuition is portrayed in the identifiable presence of the artist as the observer whose perception has an effect on the subject of her investigation. In identifying myths and legends from various places, she has unknowingly implemented in her own narrative structures and her sense of self as she strives to understand the correlations between each myths, this is symbolized through the deer and the moth that makes appearances through the series.
