"I AM MY OWN MOVEMENT" STATEMENT OF THE ART
Informed by the fall of the rationalist ego, and also because speaking on behalf of a coterie is more convincing than standing alone, Memoticon diversifies herself into distinct artists.
The artists are emotionally charged concepts. Effusing onto the canvas, they become embodied as works of art.
The concept artists constituting Memoticon’s body of work have their own characteristic styles. Therefore, she as an ensemble has several artistic periods at the same time.
Memoticon is reborn each time someone revels in her works of art; thus, her birth cannot be pinned down to a particular date. Nor can it be chained to a given place, as the movement keeps sprouting into existence in spaces of aesthetic appreciation.
To put it slightly differently, Memoticon chooses to bypass the rules of the birth data competition. Suffice it to say that she comes from the Void of Voids, and before an enforced and, on occasion, admittedly alluring return there, she opts for the bright side of the human game.
Bright as in witty, profound, vivacious, classy and sassy, exuberant, free of, free to.
At best, Memoticon smiles at academic qualifications. In case you are fascinated with authorized knowledge, though, she can show off, inter alia, an MA in Philosophy with honours, a certificate for completing a course on Justice, passed in two days not only due to an immense obsession with the subject but also with the aim of casually mentioning to you that she attended Harvard, an Intercultural Mediator certification, and two postgraduate diplomas in Translation Studies.
You may consider her an outsider artist if you wish, albeit that she might give the impression of being more in than out here and there.
Just for the record, she prefers to regard herself as a life-taught artist, an in-between.
As part of a strategic commitment to ourselves, we grant the Memoticon Award to one of us each year.
