The blood of women

Traces of red on white cloth

 

Conceived by: Manuela De Leonardis

Curated by: Manuela De Leonardis and Rossella Alessandrucci

Organized by: La Stellina Arte Contemporanea

 

Opening Sunday May 1th, 2016 at 4:00 pm

The exhibition will continue until May 14th

 

The starting point of this exhibition  is cloth sanitary pads used to absorb menstrual blood until the early Sixties found by Manuela De Leonardis in the market of the Olympic Village, in Rome. These linen rectangles of 49x47 cm approx. - white or ivory �“ were never used or washed and were stored amongst the household linens: they have frayed edges on the two longer sides. These objects belonged to anonymous women. Some are initialed (FI, SV, A, AT, AV) predominantly embroidered with red thread.

 

Thirty international artists: Yasue Akiyama, Manal AlDowayan, Wafa Bahai, Alessandra Baldoni, Tomaso Binga, Rosina Byrne, Giovanna Caimmi, Karmen Corak, Vlasta Delimar, Kristien De Neve, Maria Diana, Isabella Ducrot, Maïmouna Guerresi, Susan Harbage Page, Sasha Huber, Hanako Kumazawa, Silvia Levenson, Anja Luithle, Patrizia Molinari, Elly Nagaoka, Sonya Orfalian, Anna Romanello, Ivana Spinelli, Paola Romoli Venturi, Virginia Ryan, Ketty Tagliatti, Judy Tuwaletstiwa, Laura VdB Facchini, Maria Angeles Vila, Ruchika Wason Singh are involved to investigate various aspects of female: birth, puberty, menopause, violence, femicide.

 

Each artist will be given a cloth menstrual pad to work with, in full creative freedom, producing an artwork.

 

Blood is a recurring theme in contemporary art, along with other bodily fluids such as tears, sweat, urine, saliva, and semen. While male blood represents courage, female blood denotes shame, even more if it is menstrual blood.

 

The blood of women - traces of red on white cloth aims to celebrate an event which originates from the beginning of time, and aims  to transform any trace of scorn toward the female body into enthusiasm and vitality.

The project involved: the artist Mirella Bentivoglio, the journalist and writer Rita Boini, the art critic Jerica Ziherl, the expert in Japanese language and literature Maria Cristina Gasperini, the psychoanalyst Alberto Massarelli and the gynecologist Stefano Barchiesi.
