Beatrice – To Hell and Back is the second in a trio of multi-sensory installations dissecting human interaction, relationships and expectations. Beatrice is a facet of Kellems Dominik’s continuous exploration of her own emotional autobiography. An installation that delves through the traumatic layers of a modern story but with historical soul, it is a tale of insufficient and selfish love. In this story’s incarnation, only one partner will shed the invisible chains of hell to reach for the star. This saccharinely beautiful installation is based on the concepts found in Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy and is inspired by the famed poet’s autobiography, La Vita Nuova (1295).
THE INSTALLATION INTEGRATES SCULPTURE, MULTI-MEDIA PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGES, NEON, THE WRITTEN WORD, LAYERED SOUNDTRACK AND SCENT.
