Lecture by Manuela De Leonardis, book curator
The Center for European Studies UNC
North Carolina (USA)
Supported by Fondazione Pasquale Battista, The blood of women. Traces of red on white cloth is the book produced by Manuela De Leonardis within the framework of the artistic project she has created and curated. It involves sixty-eight international artists working with a menstrual cloth. The physical and conceptual link between these women and their menstrual cloths is extremely close. In their own language and with this awareness each artist has addressed different aspects of femininity: birth, puberty, maternity, reproductive choices, menopause, sexuality violence and feminicide, considering that some of them are still taboo both in western and global society. In the hands of Ilaria Abbiento, Manal AlDowayan, Adele Angelone, Elizabeth Aro, Wafa Bahai, Alessandra Baldoni, Carolle Bénitah, Takoua Ben Mohamed, Saša Bezjak, Tomaso Binga, Rita Boini, Rosina Byrne, Giovanna Caimmi, Primarosa Cesarini Sforza, Rupa Chordia-Samdaria, Sara Ciuffetta, Lea Contestabile, Karmen Corak, Mila Dau, Vlasta Delimar, Kristien De Neve, Maria Diana, Isabella Ducrot, Nilüfer Ergin, Cristiana Fasano, Maimuna Feroze-Nana, Simona Filippini, Emita Frigato, Pilar, Barbara e Stella Marina Gallas, Silvia Giambrone, Felicity Griffin Clark, Maïmouna Guerresi, Susan Harbage Page, Sasha Huber, Susan Kammerer, Fariba Karimi, Eglė Kuckaitė, Hanako Kumazawa, Silvia Levenson, Wenwen (Vivienne) Liu, Lôw (Estabrak Al Ansari, Raiya Al Rawahi, Tara Al Dughaither), Barbara Luisi, Anja Luithle, Victoria Manganiello, Florencia Martinez, Patrizia Molinari, Elly Nagaoka, Ana Maria Negară, Yasuko Oki, Novella Oliana, Sonya Orfalian, Lina Pallotta, Sara Palmieri, Chiara Pellegrin, Sofia Rocchetti, Elisa Roggio, Anna Romanello, Paola Romoli Venturi, Virginia Ryan, Cinzia Sarto, Ivana Spinelli, Silvia Stucky, Ketty Tagliatti, Judy Tuwaletstiwa, Laura VdB Facchini, Maria Angeles Vila, Nicole Voltan, Ruchika Wason Singh, and Deborah Willis the cloth has become a strong witness for reflections which go beyond gender issues. These works talk about intimate and personal events, evoking memories resurfacing from oblivion and finding a new place in the present. Anonymous stories, known stories, ordinary stories are all first-person narratives, metabolized and elaborated through metaphor, irony, poetry, literary and pictorial citations. Accompanying the curator’s critical contribution, the volume includes Ciclo (1974) by Mirella Bentivoglio, critical texts by Annalisa Zito(Fondazione Pasquale Battista), Rossella Alessandrucci (Gallerist), Federica Formato (Gender Language Researcher), Alberto Massarelli (Psychoanalyst), Arianna Di Genova (Art Historian), Stefano Barchiesi (Gynecology and Obstetrics consultant), Maria Cristina Gasperini (Ethnologist and Expert in Japanese language and literature), Rita Boini (Journalist), Niki D’Attoma (writer), works by sixty eight artists with their texts, a critical contribution by Jerica Ziherl (Vasta Delimar’s work), Denis Volk (Sasa Bezjak’s work), a poem by Valerie Fermariello (Fariba Karimi’s work), and the front-cover with Per una espressione nuova/ Towards New Expression by Suzanne Santoro published in 1972.

curated by Chiara Capodici, Niccolò Fano and Sara Palmieri
26th June - 20th July
Via del Pigneto, 162/e
Through the book(s) is a series of exhibitions intended to deepen the understanding of a body of work by reconstructing its roots, inspirations, potential contaminations and elements of dialogue. The exhibition is presented as an ideal library, comprised of and not only by photobooks.
The process related to the work on show will be displayed during the fifth appointment of Through the book(s) with a selection ok books from Sara Palmieri's library, in dialogue with a series of volumes from Leporello, chosen with Niccolò Fano.
La forma del silenzio - the shape of silence- on show at Matéria gallery from June 6th to July 19th, tells the expansion of a millisecond and the metamorphosis of the perceptual space, decostruct and reconstruct worlds, universes, looks for new "levels", analyzes the sensitivty's intimate layers through stories and "connections".
Can we break the wall separating us from our limited perception of time, space and infinite? Sara Palmieri tries to answer this question investigating the relationship between silence, emotional flow and cathartic outbreak; a relationship that leads every human being to feel the need to transcend, to go beyond, to riconnect with the methaphisical.
On the occasion of Through the book(s) there will be also the presentation of A Place Both Wonderful and Strange, published by Fuego Books, a photographic antology inspired by Twin Peaks and the poetics of David Lynch with the work of 12 international photographers, among which Scenario by Sara Palmieri. On show also a selection of books of the Spanish publisher.
My solo show La Forma del Silenzio will open on the 6th of June at Matèria Gallery in Rome, together with a solo show by Giorgio Di Noto.
