About The Artwork

Delivered rolled in a tube. +++ Advice: It is possible to frame the artwork or to pin it directly to the wall like a poster or even to paste it on a wooden panel which will then hang on the wall‌. Or I can also offer you a presentation in 'Kakemono' with two wooden sticks at each end with a suspension with a rope from the top (on request) The paper used is solid enough to be pasted. 'Metamorphosis' is the expression of a state of transformation that unfolds almost before our very eyes. We plunge into the depths of an organic fabric and witness its mutability. The contrast between background and surface, through gesture and luminosity, accentuates the effect of a living thing vibrating before our very eyes. * 'Metamorphosis' est l'expression d'un état de transformation qui se déploie presque sous nos yeux. On plonge dans les profondeurs d'un tissu organique et on assiste à sa mutabilité. Le contraste du fond et de la surface, de par le geste et la luminosité accentue l'effet qu'un vivant vibre sous notre regard.

The work of Marijah Bac Cam questions the Memory of the Living through the Languages of the Feminine Principle (creative principle of Nature) by means of drawing, painting and increasingly photography and video. What does this chaos of fullness and emptiness mean, enhanced with dots, curves, golden wefts and gestural writing? In the artist's painting we perceive a Living being organized before our eyes, starting with the diffusion of black ink. These dark masses mingle with another color to symbolize the different elements, air, water, fire, earth, ether. Suddenly an organic mesh forms on the surface, connected to the misty depth. It is a question of reversal, as if to lead our gaze towards an inner world, that of the organs, tissues, vessels of an unrepresented body. These drawings express more sensibly an intuitive word in a vegetal and vibratory atmosphere that are our buried memories. They are the representation of the original past in a form that is no longer mental but metaphorical. Graffiti sometimes float here and there, like a palimpsest as if to inscribe a forgotten verbal dimension and question the meaning of forms. Her work evokes images that are almost figurative but difficult to identify. It's a question of everyone's point of view, seen from the sky or underwater, in macro or even in a wide shot. This collective memory seems to define and tell terrestrial and extra-terrestrial landscapes. Does Nature have a universal language that hides in our memory?
