Coronet Inside Out: Roberta Lima
For Coronet Inside Out, artist Roberta Lima has shared a short film showing the making of her piece Ghost Plant.
“Inspired by incredible structures existing in nature and our surroundings, this work is a representation of systems of support and connectivity. In Ghost Plant the body stands on its own, the collective stands for empowering.
After years living in Vienna, I moved to Finland and experienced the conflict of isolation. Initially I struggled with feeling alone, but then I profited from introspection. I explored with the body as energy source and the element that challenges and redefines structures. I also embraced restrictions and sought for alternative forms of communication. Working remotely has been my reality before the Coronavirus crisis. The support of my friends and team in Vienna, Brazil, and other places, is crucial for making and presenting this work.
The video for The Coronet shows the development of making Ghost Plant. From the first images shot in Winter 2019 to where I am now: working on a prototype sculpture of the multi-media installation and performance to be exhibited in Vienna in fall/winter of 2020.” – Roberta Lima
