Così è (se vi pare)

Così è | 2018 Unwoven and embroieded linen canvas, pearls and Svarowsky crystals. Atrezzo manikin (bust) and wooden stand. Canvas of 200 x 200 cm approx. with the form of a long skirt with train + black lining. Approx. dimensions of canvas + manikin and wooden stand when installed: CM (H)120 x (W)150 x (D)200 | Embroieded poem “Non la resa…” by Simona Polvani.

Così è (se vi pare), a 200 x 200 cm canvas, freed from the frame, recovers movement and wrap bodies in the form of a long skirt with train. It symbolizes a woman’s heritage as much as its transformation.

For ArtBanchel 3 (Madrid), I asked women artists to wear the canvas: I portrayed them and printed their portraits on a human scale to integrate them into the urban landscape.
