The Blood of Women-Traces of Red on White Cloth

   

Sometimes, the exhibits, those creative projects that sneak into reality by messing with the daily grind, arise from chance encounters, sometimes even with objects. The Blood of Women: Traces of Red on White Cloth, will be shown for the second time at Teatro Stabile Comunale of Isola del Liri (Italy) through May 14th 2016). It was first exhibited at the the Casa Internazionale delle Donne (International Women House) of Rome. The thirty international artists included are as follows: Yasue Akiyama, Manal AlDowayan, Wafa Bahai, Alessandra Baldoni, Tomaso Binga, Rosina ByrneGiovanna Caimmi, Karmen Corak, Vlasta Delimar, Kristien De Neve, Maria Diana, Isabella Ducrot, Maïmouna Guerresi, Susan Harbage Page, Sasha Huber, Hanako Kumazawa, Silvia LevensonAnja Luithle, Patrizia Molinari, Elly Nagaoka, Sonya Orfalian, Anna Romanello, Ivana Spinelli, Paola Romoli Venturi, Virginia Ryan, Ketty Tagliatti, Judy Tuwaletstiwa, Laura VdB Facchini, Maria Angeles Vila, Ruchika Wason Singh.  Each artist was confronted with a piece of linen previously used as a menstrual pad. The artists were asked to break a taboo with a bumpy history, to focus on the regenerating power of the female body and menstruation and create an artwork inspired by the small white textile.
