rûaḥ (female Hebrew onomatopoetic expression that mimics the sound of the wind or a breath)

In an oscillation of waves between tension and release, Aumedes portrays the moment of letting go after an intense experience, exploring the state of "calmness after the storm".
She uses a bed as a metaphoric space of encounter for birth and death, pain and pleasure, a place where life can often start and end. This "silent space" works in juxtaposition to the memories and sounds it is connected to.
In a cycle without a beginning or an end, rûaḥ reflects upon primal feelings of the human condition.

"This work seems to reveal unconventional aesthetics in the way it deconstructs and assembles memories in a collective imagery, to draw the viewer into a process of self-reflection."
Dario Rutigliano and Melissa C. Hilborn, ART Habens

"Simplicity with great power."
