HOLD YOUR HEAD UP AND SEE YOUR HEROIC-SELF

Text om detta projekt finns endast på engelska

2020, neck piece, brass

”Femicides, all over the world, over the centuries… Decapitations, the cuts, the death and the silence

But we can’t frame this issue only as a physical act, since silencing of women is about mobilising the immense strength that we women have

So beneath under, the act generates itself by constructing an infamous logic of anti-love, an anti-narcissism, in order to make women to hate themselves, be their own enemies

Over the centuries we women, have been sunken into the darkness of silence, the darkness of being a prisoner of our own bodies and being projected as monstrous

And we believed that, like we believed when the beautiful young Medusa with lovely head of hair, projected us as the petrifier, the snakes-headed monstrous through an old myth which repeated it self over and over. I believed so too…

The cut, the silence…

For me, quite a long, all was ”the silence”. The self image of mine to the mirror was blurry and the voice of mine was below my breath. And I believed that the divorce was the biggest cut

But in fact it turned into a new beginning, an inner journey as a Woman, a realisation. Realising the actual trauma of my life in fact, was the old me I was told I ought to be

In the new episode, I am a ”self-standing mother”, who is aware of her female body, her strengths. I follow my own voice now in order to move forward in my own path. I became a designer and now in my way to extend my art more over. And hereafter, I love mirrors. Nevertheless, I’m still learning, I’m is still healing

All Women have been through the sirens of silence, should experience that self-realisation and remember the inner power inside their bodies so they can heal and embrace the beautiful laughing Medusa again in each of us…

In this sense, this project, with a strong ignition inside, is my own contribution, as an artist, as a mother and as a Woman, to tell our true story through a sculptural form that manifests the presence of an expansive posture”
