Thami Mnyele Award 2022 under category – Work on Paper

From Control to Chaos is based upon a sketch Mariapaola created many years ago. “this work was sketched many years ago in my visual diary. They were developed into a diptych in 2020 when the world was in complete chaos and their relevance was so evident. I created this concept while pregnant with one of my three children. From complete control and safety, our children leave us to enter this world full of complexities and chaos. This work speaks to the realities every mother goes through and the awareness of the fragility of each child entering that chaos. The work is papercut and the child within the womb is cut 1mm thick all around – the fragility of the child is represented through the fragility of the paper and the work.”
