The installation is about a visual veil that refers as far as to its shape as to its monumental size, to the bridal veil. It comes with all the semiotic load due to its dual- natured symbolism. Loaded with all this heritage it speaks about the social conditions, the limits of what is acceptable, the stereotypes, the impregnation of the girlish dream and basically about the cultural dimension of freedom. “In the contrast of the “La Mariée” project of Niki de Saint Phalle that speaks about the woman’s social condition likened the bride as a supernatural scarecrow, loaded with the weight of the plastic objects – symbols, eating her flesh, the Penelope’s Webs “Peplo” embodies the heterogeneous elements under the embroidered surface and reveals them to the viewer step by step through the observation, with humour, kindness and sarcasm.” – Text by Margarita Petrova.
