When women come back home

ALTERED OBJECT

When women come back is a piece first developed inside the exhibition To Be Born By Weaving (2015). The piece is  developed as an intervention of an device of popular use in catholic populations: Mariam Holy Cards. The work borns from a research on how heavily modern and contemporary Western Art privilege visual art over other senses as a logical consequence of centuries of iconophile in Catholic Europe. By altering a device of popular use to integrate feminist content in a subtle way, the artist transgress political aspects of the imagery without fetishizing the object.

When women come back is an artwork that has strong roots in popular culture and seeks to go back to it, as part of the continuous renovation of language made by its users.
