Activity included in BBMM2018 program, Women’s Views Biennial – MAV
Blessed is above all an intimate exhibition, in which the artists Charo Corrales and Aline Part show themselves openly, sometimes using their own naked body and at other times making use of everyday objects that they reuse, transform and intervene with different techniques. These art objects echo their voices, speak of their sorrow, longings, rebellions, worries.
The show has a highly autobiographical character, for both artists the artistic practice is an intrinsic part of their lives, such as being a woman, body and emotions. “Blessed”, can mean blessed by the artistic practice, when the practice becomes a necessity and at the same time an obsession, the driving force of their daily life. Under this title the collective Bendita Mujer collects a series of “pieces” that speak of their personal experience, feelings and reflections on the subject of emotional rupture. Both women have gone through a traumatic situation of rupture, but the collective does not want to remain in the pain that the rupture produces, it also tells us about the change that causes the rupture, a change that in their case is expressed in a rebirth, a new beginning and awareness, that the collective wants to extend to all women. These two women have picked up the pieces of their breakup and have tried to build something with it, analyzing the role of the victim and then to stop being one and take the reins of his life.
