We are pleased to announce an exhibition A-un by Maria Secio as MORTIZ.SÉCIO on April 21 (Sat) & 22 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
MORTIZ.SÉCIO – artistic duo
Moritz and Sécio met in Bournemouth, UK and soon became aware of the constant influence in each others artistic expression.
Maria Sécio (b.1994) from Lisbon, Portugal has just finished her undergraduate studies in Cinematography and Photography at Arts University Bournemouth. So far, she took part in two group exhibitions, both where in Bournemouth. Her photographs have been developing from being diarist to a more painterly and romantic exploration of her subject and surroundings.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
In Japan the duality between the harmonic and bizarre is embedded in the everyday life. Pairs are often used for protection, representations and symbolism. Like the Niomon symbolizes the birth and death of all things, we came to the conclusion that as a duo, we wanted to portray the contrasting feelings felt in the japanese landscape.
