Olga Migliaressi-Phoca x HOPEgenesis
 

Olga Migliaressi Phoca's artworks are full of signs. Various signs that are difficult to decipher. Some are tiny footprints, others offer beautiful traces or macabre symbolism's. Most of them make you laugh out loud! Weather you are looking at her led light-box called ‘MARTYR’ that is inspired by the famous ‘Martini’ logo or her collages on canvas that are full of signs of her own sexuality and erotic desire, Migliaressi’s works always have a narrative and a confrontation. While walking around the artist’s installation in support of the HOPEgenesis work, various surprises await. Many of the artworks are impossible to describe with precision. Does the Hell light box refer to the recent environmental negligence's or to the commercialization of the contemporary artwork? What about that sculpture on the floor, called ‘TOMBSTONE’, that carries the shape of the famous ‘Toblerone’ chocolate bar? Is this supposed to be a grave? Oh, it looks so sweet and yummy...

With a purely pop aesthetic and an intense dose of irony, Olga Migliaressi-Phoca aims to criticize several conventions of Western societies and invites us to look at our attitude towards various social taboos
