Thizome and the Dizziness of Freedom
This book is published on the occasion of Rhizome and the Dizziness of Freedom, the first solo exhibition in Italy by artist Mona Osman. The exhibition consists of a series of paintings made specifically for Collezione Maramotti and developed in parallel to each other. Osman works from the idea of combining Biblical narratives with existentialist concepts, thereby raising questions rather than offering answers. Through her painting, she carries out a philosophical and spiritual investigation into the search for Self, which she believes is impossible to define in terms of the fixed or absolute understanding of ones own essence. With handwritten texts by the artist.
