8 cultures, 8 races, 8 stories, 8 women, 8 dolls
made in paper clay and Raku.
They all speak of women's fragility and strength. Assembled by their joints as antique dolls, all naked, showing how we are all equals. Bodies that we cover with costumes to give us identity and belonging; costumes that make us forget who we are and why we exist.
Their only symbols of belonging are in their hair and feet.
Each one has a poem describing her life, with features and experiences that inevitably both differentiate and unite them.
This propossal is a photography and digital image superimpose set of images, 4 images for each one of the 8 dolls, showing im-possible poses as their im-possible lives.
