These artworks depict a future world in which females will have a great role to its evolution. The first one is a Goddess named AMA ask me anything and represents knowledge. The word knowledge is a female noun in Greek language. Referred to transhumanism this image depicts the whole world as knowledge because of the sophisticated technologies that enhance the human intellect.
The second goddess came from the union of females of the world and she carries all the experiences and difficulties of all these women in a patriarchy society with her. But as any goddess, she is fearless, she is special, she has a complex thinking, a different body shape and she gives birth to new ideas.
Zycrei is a Greek artist born in Cape Town-South Africa.
She is active in visual arts/video poetry. Camouflaged recursion is her art technique.
The name Zycrei contains parts of the words Zymosis and creation and implies a comparison of the process of making art to the process of zymosis.
Drawings with acrylic, charcoal, paint markers and personal photos digitally processed by the camouflaged recursion art technique are turned into videos, digital collages or combined with poems as an integrated part of them.
Her work relies on abstraction and non-transparency (referring to inner workings), the inherent characteristics of poetry, eroticism, thinking, seduction and life itself. It is like wandering in a ‘city’ in digital post- truth age, having a map of another ‘city’ with the characteristics above.
She creates artworks for the black of the white of the grey life in a society that is afraid of secrecy, darkness and diversity.
She was part of the exhibition The Artbox. Project Basel 1.0 14th June - 18th June 2017 Art Basel Week, Switzerland with her project 'Being of a doornail' https://ello.co/zycrei/post/pftiut1bb3qfwl0lvv8fbw .
