A TIME, a PLACE, the PERSONAS.
AmantaChristina's current work engages with a time in history - a specific year to be exact .
A place – whether from memory, fantasy or longing.
The personas, which were present in that moment.
Research is done on the year, which includes historical events, fashion, colour trends, textile designs, popular art movements and world music trends.
Her work reflects the story that is long lost…. remembering the things that is forgotten….
They represent a beginning. They represent an end. They allow us to ponder on new possibilities, of what is hidden, what was and what is yet to come.
They speak a language of sensuality. They have been present in all the moments trough-out time. They have been burdened or blessed, while silently gathering the stories of the momental happenings.
