Martina Zelenika MOON: MetaPerspective

μετα προοπτική
aka MetaPerspektiva

Metaphysics as the science of absolute presuppositions implies the appropriateness of cognition: in a specific, ontotheological manner it reveals the argumentation behind man's perspective on certain natural primary principles. However, the prefix meta- also implies something essentially different: that it is the argumentation of this “beyond” upon which man’s orientation in the world that surrounds him really depends. And this world is, of course, entirely physical. Aristotle knew this, but his translators didn’t.

The interdisciplinary art project MetaPerspective by Croatian artist Martina Zelenika aka Moon is based precisely on this fact: that the post-physical is what substantiates the physical, and that it is, when perceived as such, indeed the decisive factor for the creation of new, in the case of Zelenika mutated and un-humanly proportionated creations. Moon as an artist synthesizes media and syntagms, combining the physical with the artistic: we can say that she merges the Here with the Beyond in a Transdisciplinary manner. In doing so she is not so much in search of a seeming, often inexistent harmony, but openly admits the truly dis-harmonic global hypocrisy, thereby pushing the observer towards a self-reflection of his respective social environment. We are what we are told to be.   

The meta-perspective is of course the author's parallax of the social dis-order: she reflects upon it precisely because it does not exist anymore in modern times. The perspectivity of the view has become transformed into a meta-psychosis, and the latter into a metastasis of the modern globalization trend: to bereave the human race of what is human, and in turn, by implementing a cerebral meta-paralysis, to suck out its last tax-free drop of blood: the absolute, entirely non-metaphysical and individual Rh-.

Artist's statement
Interdisciplinary is the main characteristic of  my  artistic  expression.  I  challenge  time  and  space  beyond; through  science  and  spirituality  I  intuitively  approach  the  realization  of  my  artwork  and  thus  lead  the observer  into  a  fluid  and  intimate  experience.  There  are  three  ongoing  projects  in  my  opus  that  represent  an important  outline  of  my  work:  an  interdisciplinary  project  named  TAB_Leter  through  which  I  intend  to explore  the  unknown  boundaries  within  the  communication  fields  of  text,  sound  and  image.  It  represents  a new  prospect  of  communication  in  the  near  future - today's  digital  age.  Imprints outside  the  rules is a  cycle  that  connects  mathematics,  astronomy  and  geophysics  into a fluid  perception  of  space. These large-format  drawings represent impact craters, formed  out  of  an  ellipse,  the so-called irregular trajectory. The  latest and newest cycle  Projections beyond  refers  to  a  new  concept  of  the  universe, which in physics stands for  the  holographic  projection  of  the  universe  called  Amplituhedron.  Together  with  my  own internal  projection  I am  creating  a  new  kind  of  humanoid mutants,  which  represent  universal  love.
It is a great honor and pleasure to be able to present for the first time the entire thematic concept intended to heal our contaminated society, with the exhibition MetaPerspective, where I am presenting the latest cycle at the KiBela Gallery in MMC KIBLA, Maribor. On this occasion I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the execution of this exhibition, as well as the Universe for bringing us together.

MOON, 2015.
