ARTIST'S STATEMENT

“The strenght of softness”

The braid is the first knit that women learn when we are kids. It is a weave that we do to ourselves, with ourselves, taking our hair as a fiber. 
In an act of synthesis, but also of repetition, I invoke all the women that work, worked and will work in the art of weaving. I invoke them through the braid as a symbol of femininity. I invoke them with braids that, instead of falling gently, they appear standing up, as symbol of power, as a flag of strength.
This work is an intervention to a machine to talk about women. It is an experimental tribute to crafts and female power.
