A contemporary rereading of “The Birth of Venus.”
WOMAN'S ESSENCE is an international woman oriented project which has become over the years a great dialogue in which to keep telling stories of contemporary artists from all over the world that have nourished with their experiences and different cultures as well as their art, and this weft we have been continuing to weave.
From a depicted subject and source of inspiration in the history of art, today the women claim their universe in joining an artistic issue aimed at sharing, free from any sexist involvement.
In our latest project entitled “A”, as a collateral event of the official pavilion, we’re going to see them involved in the concept of water, which symbolism binds itself intrinsically with the female element. Water is the feminine, it’s deep, its flows are often invisible onto the surface, but inside the life is hidden from the external gaze. The water is ductile, passive, fluid and receptive; it always flows downwards and drags all it finds on its way. Without embankments, the water is dispersible, but in return, it brings the life, the fertility, as a matter of fact, where there’s water there’s life. Water and woman are unpredictable, illogical, but unexpectedly creative. The natural intuitive power, instinct and sexual energy belong to both woman and water. It’s the story of mysterious and unpredictable souls and at the same time strong, which can express themselves through the impetuosity of water.
