Félicie d’Estienne d’Orves
For this exhibition the French artist Félicie d’Estienne d’Orves (Athens, 1979) proposes a reflection around ‘deep’ fields of visual perception that she denominates «Deep Fields» which in line with the work of the Land Artists of the 1970s offer new areas of artistic exploration.
The name of the show is inspired by an image of a small region in the constellation of Ursa Major taken by the Hubble telescope and known as Hubble Deep Field (HDF). In this seemingly empty region of the sky, a window of a few millimeters has revealed nearly three thousand distant galaxies embracing a cosmic perspective of more than thirteen billion light-years. HDF (Hubble Deep Field) is a photograph, a visual proof of an infinity of worlds in which each galaxy contains billions of suns. The image testifies to other dimensions of reality and literally projects thought into new horizons.
