Shreds of Eve
Anyone who studies history learns the coherent stories of fathers, sons and husbands. We can only form an image of women by stringing together some shreds and threads of stories carelessly scattered around. ‘Shreds of Eve’ is a series of poetic portraits that emphasize the fragmentation of herstories in history.
All portraits are carefully and lovingly composed by me. From various fragments of photographs by myself, found footage, drawings and digital paintings, piece by piece new portraits of women were created. They represent the number of untold or disjointed stories of women throughout history.
With ‘Shreds of Eve’ new primeval women -Eves of shreds – arise to encourage the viewer to rethink history and tell future stories from an equal female perspective.
