The awakening of the Olympian goddesses
Rachel Convers's two new creations, named Téa and Elena, are a celebration of the goddesses of Olympus. Imbued with an ethereal lightness, the majestic sculptures of Téa and Elena stand proudly, carved in a dazzlingly pure white marble, alabaster. This diaphanous dominant contrasts with the pre-established codes of the Collector collection, and affirms Rachel Convers's new artistic choice.
The duality of the goddesses of Alabaster
In the context of the goddesses Téa and Elena, the question of gender emerges. The two divinities seem to transcend patriarchal boundaries, simultaneously embodying feminine traits as well as elements borrowed from the masculine register. Once again, the artist is seeking to establish the ambiguity of gender. Téa, whose name evokes the goddess, confronts the viewer with a troubling ambivalence between the symbols of femininity, such as flowers and butterflies, and a face with androgynous features.
The intimate revelation of Téa and Élena portraits by Rachel Convers
In this interview, Rachel Convers talks about her new creations for Ibride, Téa and Éléna. Driven by the desire to give life to the inanimate, she has chosen to defy the limits of art by infusing motionless forms with subtle movement.
