Artist’s statement

CONSTRUcT

  1. Make by fitting parts together, build, erect

(From Oxford English dictionary)

What else to do during Covid restrictions that enjoy a couple of conspiracy theories?

It all started when I came across a Facebook page “Ancient Aliens” which amongst other things, includes high quality photos of various archaeological sites.  Members of this type of site are enthusiastic about the book of Enoch, alien interventions, and government and religious constructs and coverups of many and varied topics – including Covid 19

Watchers: Book of Enoch tells of angels called watchers sent to earth to watch over humans.  The term also refers to members of alien civilizations that keep an eye on earthly activities using ancient monuments eg the Egyptian and South American pyramids they constructed, to communicate with their base.

Oannes

A fish god/messenger from the gods, in Mesopotamian mythology who taught mankind civilization.  During the day he came out of the Persian Gulf and while on land taught mankind writing, farming, the arts and the sciences, and to live in harmony.  In the evening he returned to the sea.

He is described in Sumerian and Babylonian documents as a fish but with an extra head of a man, and a man’s feet.

In Mesopotamian sculpture Oannes is frequently depicted with 2 right feet, as well as 2 right arms, one carrying a horticultural object suited to propagation, the other holding a handbag.

Ancient Astronaut Theorists regard him as an alien.

Handbags

Sumerian, Babylonian etc gods are often depicted carrying “handbags” which Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe contain any number of useful things to deploy themselves while on earth, or with which to educate humans – the only limit to the possibilities is your imagination.  (Ironically remaining three dimensional examples of these early objects are solid, incapable of holding anything.)

Orion constellation

Ancient cultures were often very sophisticated astronomical observers, using stars for navigation and aligning monumental structures to reflect the stars in Orion’s belt, the equinox sunrise etc.  Ancient Alien Theorists suggest that this point in the night sky “may have been a Star-gate, or entry point, for alien life forms.  Some believe that extraterrestrials who have been visiting Earth for thousands of years may have originated from the Orion Nebula.”  (Contemporary astrophysicists describe Orion Nebula as an enormous cloud of gas and dust, a great nebulous cocoon that gives birth to stars)
