"Días Especiales" by
With the installation "Días especiales" (Special Days) as the closing exhibition of this year at the Bronx Blue Bedroom Project, I want to give back the sense of bedroom to Blanka's room.
The installation consists of a full-size sheet on a bed where I printed etchings inspired by medical books' images of biopsies from different menstrual cycle days. This project is an introspective exploration of the female body, but rather than offering a negative connotation with the association of dirtiness and impurity of some cultures and religions, I want to cherish women's bodies by exploring menstruation in a positive way.
The printing of this project was made possible thanks to a grant from NoMAA (Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance) and the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone.
