Be a Woman tries to explore the female role in its human and emotional meaning. Through the analysis of the main roles embodied by every woman – daughter, mother, wife, old woman or widow – the series aims to express the most existential and physical dynamics of female life. The introspective and psychological point of view sometimes is strongly autobiographical. This project is composed with self portraits and portraits – or body details – of the women of my family: my mom, my sister, my grandma, my aunts. The intention of the work is articulated between a more properly personal sphere, where some traumas and individual stories are brought to light, and a branch more open to gender female identification.

The aesthetic minimalism expropriates the subject from the environmental con- text, forcing the gaze to turn mainly towards the specificity of the single photo- graph. Images so bony and bare recall the idea of a subject that coincides directly with the concept. The role of the body here becomes fundamental. No longer “my” body, but a canvas and a performative instrument, the body of my family, of the women who raised me and who produced the connective and identifying fabric of this project.

Chiara Cordeschi
artist / photographer

Chiara Cordeschi was born in Sardinia (Italy) in March 1996. After high school she moved to Milan where she graduated in New Technologies of Art at the Brera Academy. Her work is focused mainly on self-portrait and still-life. She always starts from a personal and emotional self-analysis translated into images and concepts. The objects that she uses or portrays are metaphors or extensions of herself. The images appear minimalist, naturalistic and symbolic. They are created by combining photography with performative actions. She works on themes that affect the female body and human feelings in these entirety. Her personal body becomes expressive medium on which he works to convey universal concepts going beyond the subject/object distinction.
