This is a bronze sculpture
"One is not born, but rather becomes a woman."
This line by Simon de Beauvoir is my inspiration for this artwork. When a woman dons her gender roles, it determines the socio-cultural meaning and the form that her body acquires.
As I said earlier, My sculptures are based on every woman's life, her mental and social struggles to become a “woman” in society.
One of my sculptures is based on a woman in a cage with broken wings, the wings which are cut by patriarchal and other societal norms.
As a woman, and that too as a woman of color, even I have dealt with situations of hopelessness and struggled just to be a woman.
The caged existence of becoming a woman makes her break the chains to come out in rage. And come out stronger from her sufferings
And therefore, rephrasing what Karl Marx had said, “women have nothing to lose, but their chains” she stands as a symbol of a fearless woman ready to take up all challenges being stronger than ever.
