CHIARA CORDESCHI
The project is divided into several main phases of the life of every woman - birth, first menstruation, marriage, motherhood, old age, family, their feelings, lost love and self-seeking.
It includes personal portraits and portraits of the most important women in my family - my mother, my sister, my aunts and my grandmother. Through them I tried to sublimate some previous experiences and project myself into future roles. Each object represented is metaphorical or is often archival material - photos of family albums, scale, ultrasounds, letters. Be a woman is a very personal female story that wants open up to the world.
-
This project would never have existed without the women that raised me, made the woman I am. Their portraits are a bit of my self-portraits.
