"Phoenix from the ashes" virtual exhibition by PRISKA PASQUER GALLERY, curated by TINA SAUERLANDER // A majestic bird hovers above the gallery. The winged giant not only evokes the Phoenix, but also the Persian Simurgh, the king of the birds, which serves as a symbol for the self-knowledge that can only be reached when adhering to virtues like kindness or benevolence. The bird’s appearance reflects the colors of its surroundings and therefore metaphorically encompasses the whole space. Circling back to the idea of our avatars creating words from letters, the mystic bird symbolizes that not a single letter or person is of too much significance. Together, we create, shape, and constantly transform our own narratives. The giant bird ("TayAR") is commissioned by Grafikens Hus as part of the app Protoworld.
