When I was 13 is the artwork I made for the project Il sangue delle donne. Tracce di rosso sul panno bianco. , curated by Manuela De Leonardis, that brings together the work of more than 14 female artists on a delicate subject that is still a taboo today. The intention is to celebrate an event that occurs since the beginning of the world and turn the contempt for the female body into vitality.
When I was 13 is related to my body of work M.
When I was 13 I became a woman.
When my mother was 13 learned to do cross-stitch, at the sewing classes for tomorrow' good wives.
When my grandmother was 13, she cut her long tresses and she was no longer a child.
This canvas has been embroidered together with my sister, my uncle and my mother, with my grandmother's (fake) hair. Braiding the threads that tie the female memory of my family, I choose the canvas as a place, a map, an uterus, to confirm my belonging, and at the same time to refuse the past social conventions that used to define what it means being and becoming a woman.
