The third step of Noi social 4 Women is a photographic work on reconstruction.
All self-portraits. Rebuild.
I thought of Kintsugi (金 継 ぎ) the ancient Japanese art of reconstructing objects, literally "repairing with gold", a restoration technique born in Japan in the 1400s and which consists in repairing ceramic objects that have broken with lacquer mixed with gold or silver dust, but leaving the repair clearly visible.
Because the parts to be reconstructed in a woman who has suffered violence are not always visible, especially in psychological violence. And I wanted to show them.
I identified parts, first the hands, as a sign of doing, then the face, as a sign of one's identity but also of the mind, then the heart for the soul, for relationships.
I worked on details and ensembles.
Mouth, eyes, hands, breasts.
Parts in healing, under reconstruction
Trauma leaves wounds that take years to heal.
It is useless to pretend that the moment the traumatic agent disappears, the consequences also disappear.
A traumatized person wears marks for years.
While I was preparing the photographic work, the videos for Geneva and for the performance that I would have performed for the Maison de la Jonction on social networks, I began to publish "Rebirth", reborn, with some shots also taken with Smarth phone during the shooting session of "Io I'm pure love ".
That shooting was very strong. My personal experience exploded in these images, strongly invalidating the lines I had given myself for the project.
I worked two years to rework images and assemble the diptychs.
And this work is the final one as of February 2020.
Like Jung's technique of active imagination, this work too could be susceptible to new modifications, additions, cancellations in the future.

TO THE PROJECT.
In Geneva in 2017 I made a 3-day performance where I delivered 200 photographs of my Flowers and Poetry series to 200 people. A GIFT FOR YOU.
The Geneva event took place with an exhibition of photographs, a Vjset session and the presentation of the project I am pure love.
We are working on the material created in those days to publish it on the site but it is partly already published on Instagram and visible on the hashtags:
