The universe presented by Mariana Bunimov (Caracas, Venezuela 1972), in her first exhibition at Michel Rein Gallery places the viewer in the middle of a crossroad where, without hierarchy or apparent connection, thousands of images hailing as much from her imaginary as from her daily life, cross paths.  

Defying any kind of criteria or absolute, the eclectic nature of her world is also the reflection of the spirit of our time, the zeitgeist: a fragmented and hybrid world where the permanent flow of many different and divergent images and data converge in an ongoing immediacy that goes beyond any given geography or time-frame.  

Through the accumulation, re-appropriation and transformation of bits and pieces of multiple realities, Bunimov creates an eclectic world. Civic upheavals rub shoulders with childhood images, music, lovers, landscapes, modern ruins, personalities, martyrs, fashion, architecture, memories, hybrid-objects and hybrid-beings. After years of working on sculpture, video art, animation and installations, Bunimov once again offers a central place to painting, this time on paper.
