ANIMA

"The saviour of the world is you"

In 2016 Anima started as a collaboration between Basia Mindewicz and David Mola.

 

We have been using symbology of orthodox iconography as a creative source of inspiration, focusing on the meditative process of art making.

 

In Anima 2017 our aim is to express the inner power hidden in people. This time the result of the research and investigation comes in the shape of sculptural pieces and art installation.

As in one of Wim Wenders films, God is inside everyone of us, angels live at your staircase and divinity is just an early morning feeling of happiness.

ANIMA 2016

The project ‘’Anima’’ features work of two artists who use different materials but both find common places in each practice.

Basia Mindewicz, Icon Painter

David Mola, Stained Glass



There are many similarities in both glass and icon painting. They both meet on many levels. Basia and David are showing their personal view of the same matter but both working with their own tools.

The main aim of each piece is to portrait a person's soul. As the traditional icon is a representation of divinity, for us any human-being is a part of that divine mystery, or buddahood. This work is not connected with any religious belief. Although Christian imagery is very present, it only works like a pretext for a wider subject.

Every image is a map of one spiritual travel. A mixture of dreams, beliefs, aspirations and the fate imprinted on everyone.

All panels fitted in a led backlit wooden light box.
