Collettivo Ingwer/Camilla Parini e Chiara Caterina
IO SONO UN’ALTRA
3 – 20 December 2015
Photos of women telling their stories, each through two self-portraits: the first portrays the realistic image the woman has of herself, the second portrays the image of what she is, but remains hidden.
The photographed body is not theirs, but that of the performer Camilla Parini, who makes herself totally available to them, like material to be moulded to recreate the image they have of themselves.
Each woman is responsible for undressing, untrimming and dressing this “body material” as she sees fit. This is done, as far as possible, through the use of clothing, make-up and objects owned by the woman herself. She then chooses the place where the body is to be posed and constructs the frame in which it is to be portrayed. A professional photographer is at her disposal to take the photos of the two completed self-portraits.
In Milan, thanks to the support of the Consiglio di Zona 9 and the INTERKULT exhibition coordinated by ZONA K, the project has involved Milanese women from all over the world: China, Morocco, Ukraine, Serbia, Syria, Tunisia and the Philippines. Together they tell us fragments of the new female universe of our city.
