3 PastPresentFuture The time project The project is about life and considers human life beyond lifetime. This artwork is exploring the topic of reincarnation and visualizes a series of incarnations of the artist. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

4 PastPresentFuture by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

5 PastPresentFuture The final space required for installation is approx. (ca m x 2-3 m). The artwork contains 12 black and white and one colored, large, white and translucent chiffon banners, each printed on one side with a realistic drawing of a life - sized figure (print measures ca. 200 cm x 90 cm, fixed size). which is visible from both sides of banner. All the banners are connected with a red thread made of textile garnets and hanged with wooden clothespins on clotheslines stretched through the room. All drawings are available also as 1/10 limited edition of fine art prints. 2011, Berlin by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

6 PastPresentFuture What is the meaning of life and what is hereafter? These constant and basic questions of mankind are being philosophically analyzed in a very personal and artistic manner, without subjecting to any dogmas. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

7 PastPresentFuture Philosophical systems and religions formulate suitable answers, but those still remain a matter of confidence and belief. For the numberless followers of the Hinduistic and Buddhistic teachings, of mystic groups and pagan or shamanic cults, of the Gnostic teachings as well as for several ancient religions including early Christianity, reincarnation has been a meaningful fact in this universal cycle of becoming and passing. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

9 PastPresentFuture Although many cases from all over the world are known, where people hold strange memories that do not correspond to their current existence, in some of that cases the traces even lead to the data of historical persons, science still does not accept this as evidences proofing the existence of reincarnation. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

10 PastPresentFuture Yet science in the fields of astrophysics and quantum mechanics is lately asking a lot more of fascinating questions about that topic. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

11 PastPresentFuture This artwork suggests a controversial discussion. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

12 PastPresentFuture I was socialized in Greek, German and European culture as a whole. As a positive and creative person, I began very early to show interest in art. That led me directly to history of art and culture, to religious studies and philosophy. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

13 PastPresentFuture by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

14 PastPresentFuture Over time I developed several obsessions, like the irrational enthusiasm for certain places or cultural eras, as well as the apparent naturalness of some ideologies. Felt convictions and absurd aversions join with fragments of memories, from the slightest presentiment to visions in movie quality. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

15 PastPresentFuture The question about the nature of personal identity is being asked by this project. The research looks for the origins of these memories and explores the possibility of reincarnation being a fact. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

16 PastPresentFuture by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

17 PastPresentFuture For a certain period of my childhood I was continuously drawing particular scenes and I was experiencing them over and over again. For years to come I held the confidence that it was all a product of an active childish imagination. Until I gained some knowledge of history of arts and suddenly realized that specific details could not be traced to any of my childhood. So how did I know about them? by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

18 PastPresentFuture by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

19 PastPresentFuture Then I started the still ongoing process to work out all those information fragments that I had collected through memories and different kinds of past life regressions and I began to compare them systematically with historic facts. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

20 PastPresentFuture by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

21 PastPresentFuture On that basis I created 13 visualized individuals to represent my incarnations. They are all 12 connected together as well as with the 13.th figure which is visualizing my current lifetime, through a red life thread which is the entity, the consciousness or the soul. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

22 PastPresentFuture The hanging in series suggests our sense of time being linear and continuous and is questioning truth from another point of view. The clotheslines from which the artworks are hanging are marking the time and space coordinates of the particular lifetimes. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT

23 PastPresentFuture The images of these individuals on the chiffon banners are referring to the bodies that the person changes as he or she would do with an old piece of clothing. The textile factor is also used to communicate the feeling of an era to the exhibition visitors by showing the visualized persons wearing historical correct clothing. by Alessandra Dimitra CONCEPT
