Donna Criminale enters Rome and touches eternity

Donna Criminale, the winner of Celesteprize Taboo, at galleria Poggiali e Forconi in Florence 2016

Donna Criminale, ephemeric sculpture / site-spesific installation, by Ulla Karttunen (here the artwork is at Galleria Poggiali e Forconi in Florence, where it was the winner of Celesteprize Taboo 2016)

The toilet paper goddess Donna Criminale will appear very soon in the eternal city of Rome. Next few weeks she will stay in the historic quarters of Rione Monti in the center of Rome, in the neighbourhood of Colosseum.

Her reign started this week, as normally, with a very banal visit to nearby supermarkets to compare the sizes and prices of toilet paper packages. – Donna Criminale is a patron saint for those who are socially excluded, ’the others’, thought to be too cheap or low by people who think they are better and higher, hanged by hate talk or other contemporary means of social exclusion. So the thematics has to do with the visible and invisible forms of racism and fascism in contemporary democratic society.

The appearance of this improbable saint and happens at LOFT GALLERY / Spazio MatER as a part of Malamegi LAB.8: International Art Contest Final Exhibition.

Society of voluntary blindness

The Thief of the Eye, 2017, a digital collage by the artist Ulla KarttunenUlla Karttunen: The Thief of the Eye, 2017, digital collage, photograph on acrylic, 118,9 x 84,7 cm

St Francis of Assisi could be called a patron saint of the poor; he preached about serving others and demanded social justice. ”Grant me the treasure of sublime poverty”, he wrote. Francis of Assisi could be seen as a severe challenger of market-based ethics, one of the first critics of capitalism.

If Francis of Assisi preached against the will to win, the ethics or anti-ethics of our times is based on raw profit-making. Our modern-day world is a visual society, where economics goes through images, imagos, brands, illusions, and other reflections. In order to gain more, we mislead the eye and do not see any more what is important, where is the basic ethics of being a human. The social play of luxury, popularity and appearances has stolen our ability to see. – This is the topic of the work The Thief of the Eye.

The developed market society has forgot the ethical message of Francis of Assisi. – As a starting point for this digital collage, a collage as meditation, has been used Zurbaran’s wonderful portrait of Francis of Assisi.

Uma, The Lady of the Mountains, 2017, by artist Ulla Karttunen Ulla Karttunen: Uma, The Lady of the Mountains, 2017, digital collage, photograph on acrylic, 118,9 x 84,7 cm

Uma, also known as Parvati, is an ancient Indian mountain-goddess. The name means light and she is the goddess of spiritual knowledge, love and devotion. Parvati is typically wearing a red dress. According to Carl Jung, Parvati belongs to the category of black goddesses, black madonnas.
