THE MYSTERY OF THE MUNDANE shows how the extraordinary is revealed through the ordinary. It is the collision of the random and the designed. It is the pieces and bits of stuff that I see in corners and shadows, left-overs that lurk behind doors, that fill bathtubs, that are thrown on couches, that capture my attention, that make me laugh, and sometimes scare me. It's the impression left in the empty bedsheets by the body of my brother-in-law who died the night before. Broken things fade as shadows crawl from the light, yet they still burn brightly within me. Not lost. No, never lost.
All of Vokert's work is based on historical works of art to which he adds a contemporary social or political twist. LUST is based on Susanna and the Elders by Andre Vaccaro (1604-1670) which depicts the biblical episode of Susanna, a young married woman preparing to take a bath as she is watched by two elderly judges who desire her. After the men falsely accuse her of adultery, Daniel steps in to prevent her execution and interrogated each man separately. When asked under which tree Susanna had committed adultery, they named very different kinds of trees – one saying a mastic tree and one saying a live oak. Daniel exposed the elders for bearing false witness and Susanna was freed and the Elders condemned.
