There’s an alluring beauty in the intangible melancholy and tragedy of loss. Lethe is an introduction to that. Derived from fear there’s a developed aversion to impermanence, loss and death; it became shapeless, hidden and abstract. This made for an awkwardly noticeable presence of absence. You can’t look, even though you know it’s there. In Lethe, Moniek likes to accompany you on a dance where you’re free to decide your pace but you’ll be immersed in these softly, forthcoming raw and complicated subjects. A created safe-space where death and the everchanging fleetingness of the moment are allowed to coexist with humans. Here it’s melancholic beauty isn’t rejected, but accentuated, appreciated and even celebrated. Taking your time for time’s passing. The installation highlights traces of time and signs of decay as if they’re shining and are valued as brand new. Through shadows, mono no aware and acceptation of loss; Lethe takes a different approach. All in awe of fleeting moments and their intangible everlasting states of movement.
