Through her deliberate use of simple materials of organic origin—soil, sourdough, cloth and, repeatedly, seeds—she ties herself in with the cycle of life, with becoming, growing and vanishing. Testifying to this concern above all are her characteristic “sowings”, almost ritual actions in which she allows cress seeds to germinate on her body using her own body heat. In some cases, she has preserved the resulting shapes, as in the work shown now at the Rüstkammer. In close proximity to the masterfully crafted beadworks and silk embroideries, the hands as a symbol of human creative power are seen in the light of a further creative energy, the energy of nature. To Murak, they refer to an understanding of the body as a medium of a primordial mystery, allowing her to see connections with fertility cults from around the world.
