Out of order originates from the necessity of exploring the relationship between the female body and power by which it is bent and flexed.
This project starts from the reading of the medical records and letters of female patients in psychiatric hospitals during the Fascist regime in Italy.
In this work, I replaced the female subjects with domestic objects with a symbolic function. These objects evoke anthropomorphic figures, or they are metaphors for dysfunctional bodies, for something that has been censored. These assembled objects are placed into a dull and lunar space made by coal. These sculptures were crafted from items of daily use and were deprived of their original status, thus suspending every relationship of cause-effect existing between them and their meaning.
Out of order can be displayed on one or more monitor, one for each portrait.
