IO SONO UN'ALTRA
I AM ANOTHER
The work is born as a reflection on identity, on what one is, who one decides to be or that others decide that we are, on choices, on non-choices, on intimacy, on the things we keep hidden from others and, sometimes, even to ourselves.
“A portrait touches, otherwise it's just an identity photo. What it touches is an intimacy that comes to the surface. " Michel Merlau-Ponty
At the center of the performances are women grappling with the creation of two of their self-portraits: the image that the woman has of herself and the image of what is also but remains more hidden, of what she would like to be or another side of herself.
The self-portrait takes place through the use of the body of another. In fact, women had the performer's body at their disposal, using it as a material to be molded.
To date, the portraits of more than 150 women between 8 and 93 years have been collected.
