Fingers in Honey
5-video, loop, sound, 2011
exhibited in Velryba Gallery, 2011
Adela has always in a degree experimented with media, the combination thereof, and her fascination by the emotional
charge bubbling under the veneer. She completes her journey — I daresay ,,from the general to the personal” — by her
latest exhibition, Fingers in Honey, for which she chose a form of video installation with five video loops of various length.
Motion in each of them is reduced to a minimum, thus acquiring a strange inner charge of urgency and tension, which
comes out purified yet not bombastic. It is precisely this narrative sparsity which may not leave the viewer with enough
room for self-interpretation, because the choice of themes is not symbolic but intuitively personal, which makes me
speak about a key element of the exhibition. Perhaps the most important gateway to the reading of this installation is the
welcome video on the wall opposite the entrance, which sets the tune and air of the exhibition and sparks a mysterious
I feel Adela successfully probes underneath the surface of given material facts to discover hidden contexts
and to purposefully sound the fathoms of something that can be perceived but never spoken out.
