Still: Bella Tara

Liquid Tara

Video Installation
2011 / 8’

Liquid Tara is a meditation upon the many faces of the sense of the Divine Feminine. Both ethereal and earthy, the work undulates in watery images of icons and symbols of The Divine, dissolving one into the other. Destruction by fire; resurrection to light: ever-changing cycles. Within the video graphics, one sees the actress Ione portray some of the many faces of acknowledging the metaphor of the many qualities existing within. She moves from the face of Green Tara of Enlightened Activity to the face of White Tara of Compassion and Healing. She then transforms into the face of Vasudhara, the goddess who grants not only physical wealth and abundance but also spiritual wealth and abundance, and finally, into Mahakali the Destroyer, who has the capacity to destroy all evil, keeping the element of feminine divinity pure.
