When the baby was born there came some astrologers.
“We have seen her star rising and are here to give her our honour”
(Valeria Montti Colque)
Photographs by Konsthopp
I was looking through my photos last night and found some I’d taken at Valeria’s Montti Colque exhibition — LA QUE SABé — early last month. The exhibition was inspired by the poem “The Thunder, Perfect Mind, and as the poem it concerns the divine feminine nature.
For I am the first and the last.
I am the honored one and the scorned one.
I am the whore and the holy one.
I am the wife and the virgin.
I am the mother and the daughter.
I am the members of my mother.
I am the barren one
For I am knowledge and ignorance.
I am shame and boldness.
I am shameless; I am ashamed.
I am strength and I am fear.
I am war!
(Taken from “The Thunder, Perfect Mind”)
I love the poem and I really much liked the exhibition so I hope the photographs give you a little taste of the night and inspires you on these dark & cold days (at least up in the North!). If it isn’t enough, check out additional photographs on our facebook profile or learn about the artist and her previous work here.
