Mystical Visions: philosophy in art

  • Expocafé Zamen 150 Zamenhofstraat Amsterdam, NH, 1022 AG Netherlands (map)

From April 2 until May 31 Marieta’s recent film and photography work is exhibited at expocafé Zamen. Collaborating with Dutch Soprano Laetitia Gerards and production company JaJa Film Productions, Marieta conceived and directed the music video DO NOT SING TO ME, MY BEAUTY. DO NOT SING TO ME, MY BEAUTY is an artistic music video in which film and classical music are reinforcing each other. With the sounds of ‘Ne poj krasavitsa pri mne’, from the composer Serge Rachmaninoff, the music video revolves around the genesis of a young woman. She shares in her singing the painful and beautiful memories of the hidden sides of her personality. Inspired by the psychology of Carl Gustav Jung, this music video shows the contrasts between the persona and the shadow. The mask for the outside world and the hidden aspect of the personality are reflected in a melancholic way in a wealth of water, green leaves, red hair and a white skin.

In 2018 she worked in Montreal, Canada, making images in collaboration with reputable models, costume designers and make-up artists. One of these projects is CHAOS REIGNS. In this photoseries women are central in the compositions and storytelling. The female symbolizes the ‘chaos’. Order and chaos are part of a mutually complementing duality that has an optimal point of balance. One isn’t better than the other: certain levels of both are desirable. The orderly, almost static, visual aspects in this series are balancing the chaos.
