Resilience as a Violent Desire 2013 - "You kill the thing you love." (Francis Bacon quoting Oscar Wilde, Francis Bacon's Arena).
Resilience as an animal force, sexual energy, violent desire are themes,which Maros Baran has always found fascinating and full of inspiration. So he decided to work with them on this collection. Swan as a virginal animal. Sacred, once "raped" by an eagle turned itself into a black daemon, disguised Zeus making love to Leda. Cursed love leading to transcendental source,human beings born from eggs. (Maros Baran will present silhouettes 1 and 2 from left)
