THE SELF PORTRAITS / PORTRAITS TO QUESTIONS OF FEMININITY

As a woman, after the storm, I lay down my arms. I don’t want to fight anymore or to act like a man. I would love to go to the garden, as a woman.

The Photomaton booth becomes an arena for the artist to perform different identities as a woman in her self-portrait series begun on 2001.
The double portrait is a record of the artists emancipatory gesture performed in these Photomaton booths and explores female identity, as it stands for the change that women go through subconsciously to comply with the stereotypes that are promoted and dictated by the mass media.
