Myth and fairy tales have been considered at all times by the artist, since in them is concentrated much human knowledge. The eternal questions that present themselves to every generation to seek and answer (Why I’m here at all?, What’s the point of my existence? Where did I come from and where am I going?) are highlighted in myths and fairy tales and always have been. Therefore, they are still the basis of inspiration for many artists, because they contain such fertile ground for the exploration of existential questions. This is certainly true of Simona Pries, a trained sculptor and architect, whose large installation shown four years ago in Celle Castle, explicitly refers to the fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty” by the Brothers Grimm. Pries presents in her cases three identical translucent fabrics, their shape is reminiscent of the structural modules of Minimalist Art and it is clear in each case that they have the same deck visible, as we know from hospitals. The call isn’t only the memory of a hundred-year sleep of a Princess, but also the fragility and finite nature of man. From four speakers we hear the story of “Sleeping Beauty”, whilst the beds of colored light seem to be from some long forgotten dream. She reminds us that our life is dangerous, full of pain and injuries, tests and crises, but that every crisis also holds the opportunity for growth… – [Extract : Text - "Of myths and fairy tales" - Michael Stoeber]
