What is the real meaning of Liberté Égalité Fraternité?

We live in a mesh of cultures. How do we build true community within extreme diversity? 
We cannot expect a bland normality for all to homogenize to. We must rather see cultural difference as a benefit to society.

Cultural and religious difference does not negate brotherhood. 
Our common humanity is the thread that binds. 
Our true heritage is painful to look at. The movement of people a legacy of economic, political and colonial upheaval.
The world is in constant flux.

The table is set. And we are all born into a state of collective baggage. 
No one is pure and unaffected by the actions of their forefathers. 
Humanity does not stop where your horizon ends. 
There is no sovereignty. We are inseparable in our actions.

The imagery of a rearing horse, signifies a powerful animal which has been subjugated by humankind, and has finally broken free. Carrying with it the weight of nationalism and patriotism, memorials and statues of statesmen and war “heroes. 
Historically, they were the creatures men took to war, to fight and die alongside them with unrelenting loyalty. Inescapably majestic and elegant in their powerful and muscular form, horses have an inherent sense of nobility.

Within this discrepancy between their physical power and their subservience, they become archetypal symbols for notions of human power struggles, war, nationalism and blind loyalty to leadership. By unleashing or freeing these dignified creatures through these images, we understand our own sense of agency, independent from political quests, ultimately expressing potentiality for our own humane power.

Faith XLVII

faith-47-signature-artist

Faith XLVII is an internationally-acclaimed visual artist from South Africa who is currently based in Los Angeles.

Through her work she attempts to disarm the strategies of global realpolitik, in order to advance the expression of personal truth. In this way, her work is both an internal and spiritual release that speaks to the complexities of the human condition, its deviant histories and existential search.

Channeling the international destinations that have been imprinted on her after two decades of interacting with urban environments as one of the most renowned and prolific muralists, she continues to examine our place in the world.

Using a wide range of media intended for gallery settings, her approach is explorative and substrate appropriate, including found and rescued objects, shrine construction, painting, projection mapping, video installation, printmaking and drawings.

The seeds for Faith’s works begin with a raw intimacy. Exploring the duality of human relationships, her imagery carries the profound weight of our interconnectedness.

While some people see a dilapidated building as proof that the world is purging itself of the unwanted, Faith is reclaiming these forgotten elements with a sensuality of her own and presenting them with a virtuoso’s skill-set.
