The project ECSTASY is an elegant study on a symbolic food, pure in form, full of value and meaning: the eucharistic host. The recurrence of eucharistic gesture becomes recurrence of the host, stripped of it’s religious value and used as texture or employed in oversize format adorned with digital print. The idea, translated into a dressing table with a basin and pitcher, can be interpreted on many levels.
The romantic dressing table has been purified, abstracted in volume and transformed into an “aesthetic altar”. The host’s form repeated on surfaces generates texture while digital prints use the discs as blank canvases. The intimate gesture becomes an intimate space for hedonistic enjoyment.
