The hummingbird song / print

Inkjet print on Hahnemühle Photorag 308 gsm / 800 x 800 mm, 650 x 650 mm, 50 x 50 mm / Edition of 75 / Stamped and signed with pencil on the back

The hummingbird song is a relevant fragment of the Sleep-Drunk Vademecum project; a painting collection about clinical technology, nightmare visions whose circular formats address that scientific look on reality, so focused and decontextualized, inevitably measured by the optical prostheses (like the microscope).

The print is a reproduction of the original acrylic painting the hummingbird song, measuring 180 cm diameter.  It was painted in 2010, while preparing The Holy Bubble exhibition in Seville, Spain.  Inspired by Rennaissance portraits such as Piero de la Francesca´s double portrait of the Dukes of Urbino and Patinir´s palette and landscapes, Tania translated these references into a process of reflection about the construction of the subject, understood as an individual immersed in power structures that defines its own perception of the body. Science or art, those bubbles in which we reflect and recognize ourselves, also isolate us from the other side.
