La Prigioniera/The Prisoner


2018 – Media: pastel on paper, transgender latex panties, latex mask, plaster, enamel, recording. Various dimensions.







The work in this catalogue includes four sculptures, four drawings and a sound piece that address co-dependence and the nature of addiction to self-destructive relationships.

The first sculpture represents a pelvis with female genitalia—which looks more like a chunk of meat than human flesh. The second one is a fossil-like tract of the intestines, that could also be perceived as a magnification of an umbilical chord. The third sculpture is the head of a species who's constantly hungry and needy, never satisfied, while the fourth one is the trace of a female sex, a negative space of a vagina.

The drawings are intended to be claustrophobic portraits. The eye of the beholder is confined to a limited area around the cheek bone. Breathing is challenging.

The sound piece is a collection of the voices of four women who explain what is co-dependence and what is recovery for them.
