Another Weeping Woman
Another Weeping Woman (About the Ridiculous Ache of Desire) is an ongoing project that investigates the female role within our society, inquiring the realms of feminism and gender equality. The project focuses on four specific characters which are heroines depicted in ancient Greek Tragedy: Medea, Alcestis, Phaedra and Helen. In Euripides’ tragedy the female role is being analyzed and portrayed as troubled and evil but, most importantly, is being the center of the tragic attention. The images are a personal interpretation of the tragic characters as a collective of carefully staged self-portraits, whose aesthetics have been informed by the literary evidence, taken in a range of locations that includes Italy, Spain and Scotland.
