The exhibition consists of seven series of drawings that combine emblematic images of pain, violence, defeat, and also resistance and overcoming. The sense of dread is accentuated by the dominant black pigment visible in many works, and in others, a free and animated line delineates the body contour.
The images are mostly of women, for the focus of the artist’s oeuvre has been the life of women in our society. The exhibition highlights the ambivalent and circular relation between safety and the loss of freedom, between sanctuary and prison. In their strange inward silence, they suggest that only a woman herself can be her own saviour.
