The opening of the exhibition in 69 (www.sessantanove.es) was Saturday 8 November at 12pm, with the screening of the video “Shattering the Glass Ceiling” in collaboration with the collective “Ideadestroyingmuros” and followed by a public performance. The body pieces were used in a street procession starting from the venue 69 in which all women were invited to participate as heroines.
The street procession arrived to the party organised by the Festival Intramurs, in the Ideo Space. where the public was invited to try on the different body extensions to the sound of DJs and live music.
In this exhibition, Anna Maria Staiano presented her collection “Planet Woman: Jewels for Heroines” which highlights gender discrimination in the public and private sphere.
Her work is based on the design of body extensions, which explore gender, transformation, interaction and play. These performatic pieces can be used to cause unexpected changes in our sensorial experience and our symbolic imaginary.
