The two bloods. Drafts from the FOR EXAMPLE MITHRAS exhibit by Farangis G. Yegane at the Kreuzgang of the Karmeliterkloster in Frankfut am Main.
Drafts for the juxtaposition of “the two bloods” and the worlds separating them. They go together in the contextualization of the integrity, the wholeness of the vulnerability of life, the dignity of all living beings and the sanctity of their lives.
The blood of affliction, pain, injustice – the sacrifice, be it human or nonhuman.
And, the blood of organic growth, of nativity, of balance – the menstruative circle in females, human or nonhuman.
Suffered experience “bonds” blood. Perpetration cuts!
“Initiated”, “baptized” by force of nature !!! or by the sword of myth ?
In the context of what’s promising to be an impressive archaeological exhibition about the deities of ancient Rome: “Imperium der Götter: Isis – Mithras – Christus. Kulte und Religionen im Römischen Reich” the Badisches Landemuseum in Karlsruhe will feature a section about the cults’ ‘effective histories’ and their contemporary reception.
The 5-lithographs-portfolio from Farangis Yegane’s FOR EXAMPLE MITHRAS I series of works will be part of that segment in the museum exhibit.
