THREE GENERATION BLOOD LINE
Three Generation Blood Line is a personal reflection on my own existence thanks for my mother who gave birth to me, as her third and last child and how my own blood gave me my son. Using the red thread while our faces are connected symbolises our three generation bloodline. The blood of woman as source of life.
This work was commissioned by curators Manuela De Leonardis and Rossella Alessandrucci from La Stellina Arte Contemporanea in Rome for the touring exhibition The blood of women Traces of red on white cloth. Blood is a recurring theme in contemporary art, along with other bodily fluids such as tears, sweat, urine, saliva, and semen. But while male blood represents courage, female blood denotes shame, even more if it is menstrual blood.The blood of women - traces of red on white cloth aims to celebrate an event which originates from the beginning of time, and aims to transform any trace of scorn toward the female body into enthusiasm and vitality.
