Bonnie Schiemann - MA Show
Everyone carries within themselves the eternal image of the opposite gender, a definite feminine or masculine image. For a woman, the average risk exuding from the oblivious originates from above, from the otherworldly circle represented by the animus, the masculine part of a woman's personality.
For a man it originates from the subterranean domain of the world and woman, the anima anticipated on to the world.
My MA project is exploring this in the designation of Pagdoonism, a word creation of Paganism and Voodoo. It is an umbrella term in which I explore elements of Paganism, traditional Witchcraft and Voodoo, thus correlating to diverse spiritual and religious paths. The puppet refers to different occult aspects of Paganism and Voodoo, in which I represent a separate being, the animus of myself. It constitutes a vessel for this unknown being that lies within all of us, whilst the related music video tells the story of the puppet and how it came to be – how it’s a part of me and how it connects to the religions. This shall unveil a bit of the mystic behind it, taking away fear and wrong depictions and showing that there is actually more than meets the eye.
