This design for the scarf was inspired by the city of Arles. The artist imagines the character she has created during the lockdown, the Minotaur. The artist was thinking about the French letter H and discovered that it does not pronounce itself, we feel it in certain words, but it is completely silent, yet it is the first in the words “Man” (“Homme”), “Honor” (“Honneur”)… Artist interests in the language of gestures, used by mute people. The H is symbolized by the same gesture as the Minotaur symbol. Thus the Minotaure character was born, a creature that is travelling in different spaces. Here Minotaure is in Arles, bring the Camargue flamingos out from the camera in front of the emblematic building.
Stella Polare, French-Uzbek young contemporary artist, based in Paris. Her real name, Khulkar, is translated as «polare star», that is why she sas chosen the artistic name Stella Polare. Today the artist aims to transmit the message that it is «urgent to be joyful» though her art. Indeed the concept the artist is developing she called “vitaculture”, that means the joy urgency. Stella Polare exhibited at UNESCO, Louvre, she had also carte blanche at Palais Jacques Coeur in 2021, the same year 2021 she was invited to the Parole des Femmes, public talk at the House of the Great French writer, Maison de George Sand.
Why Scarf ? Scarf is a symbol of emancipation of women for Stella Polare, reference of status in Europe, immutable element of the paranja history, honour murder of Nurkhon Yuldasheva, the life of Tamara Khanum in Uzbekistan, the art of Louis Bourgeois and others. This is also raising the questions of the household women labor, not counted in the national economy.
