The installation "body-clay: first portal" is an experimental creation designed with light sculpture, ceramics, sound, video art and performance on female symbols. Make the difference! Be part of it!
The installation "body-clay: first portal", by the collective without a name without time without a place, is an insurgent creation that claims, in the social imagination, a place for the feminine in language and in the categories of thought, through a rescue of ancestral wisdom once tainted.
The collective without a name without time without a place is a grouping of transdisciplinary artists whose work calls into question the female-male binomial and the concept of complementarity. The very use of the name "collective", in the feminine, marks the universe it approaches, because, as Simone de Beauvoir states, women have no past, no history and no religion of their own.
The path is to scrutinize the symbology of the sacred feminine in the sinuous forms of ceramics; in the representation of the woman in the equilateral triangle with the point downwards; in the interconnection of two circles, which represents the universal womb, and in the myth of Lilith, the one that has been erased from history. The composition accurately represents the woman's own body, the search for self-knowledge, self-acceptance and self-esteem.
The project intends to contribute to a global vision of the human being, in which gender barriers are dissolved and unity is reverted to an enrichment of its interior. In this planetary moment that we are living, where polarities are evident, we realize the need to put some concepts into the scene so that we can think, rethink and experience a possibility of deconstruction. This is the social, artistic, cultural, pedagogical and sacred commitment of this collective.
Be a supporter - supporter of art, culture and the promotion of thinking about the feminine.
