Artists have always been profoundly fascinated by the female body, but in these last years, the creative world has more than ever been confronted with a schizophrenic society: on the one hand, finally, ‘body positive’ is universally confirmed and enhanced by movements like ‘not one less’, but on the other hand, a perverse communication exalts impossible models of physical perfection, and the universe of social media presents itself as playground for digital manipulation.
The female body is a battleground of incompatible visions. It is a fundamental theme for understanding how society has, is and will evolve.
The installation is composed by three larger-than-life size sculptures created by Janine. These majestic female bodies were realized after having met a burlesque dancer, who was the protagonist of a film made by Alberto for the NGO Beawarenow for a project on body positivity.
Janine conducted an interview with the performer, and the performers voice will become an important part of the installation “women: voices, bodies, lights”. The sculptures will speak, tell stories, pose problems, and give their own answers.
“Women: voices, bodies, lights” is a’ transforming’ installation. The voices will slowly fade and give way to music, as the lights dim and the projectors shine light on photographs. Analog photographs of female bodies, taken by Alberto, will be projected onto the sculptures. Female bodies. Concrete female physicality
The installation “women: voices, bodies, lights” was created to be flexible and adaptably. Like a pop-up event, it can easily be performed in public spaces, galleries, private buildings and gardens, to disappear as fast as it was set up.
