Nadja Verena Marcin's Ophelia
Nadja Verena Marcin's performance and sculpture parallels the historical silencing and attempted destruction of women with our attempts to drown out nature's cries. The project visualizes the fragility of our bodies compared to the forces of nature--in this case water. The image of Ophelia inside an advanced, constructed reality--unable to be heard, kept alive through a mask and encircled by technology, serves as a metaphor for the Anthropocene Period in which we currently live.
