HUMAN NATURE IN LIFE AND REBIRTH
SECTION 1 :  A STUDY OF FERTILITY , 2019-2021

“ I spent 7 years on pharmaceutical birth control and, to the present day, my body never fully recovered. Having lived the absence of menstruation for a long time, I feel the issue around its truth a personal one, perceiving its happening as the blessing of being a woman.”

“A Study of Fertility” is part of an ongoing project on the relationship between women, nature and creation.

Interpreting the female reproductive system as symbol of life, death and rebirth, the series brings awareness to the taboo of menstruation and reflects on its sacrality and fundamental role within female health. Embodying an approach of respect and caring, integrity and diversity are recognised and preserved through sacredness, exploring the relation of women with the wisdom of earthly creation and replacing a leading male-centred perspective on the world with its own language of intimacy and sensibility.

Displaying social wellbeing in a sensitive approach to sustainable development, the series refers to fertility within the natural cycles of growth, in a balanced connection between the rhythms of human and nature. To respect and celebrate menstruation as a key aspect of life means to acknowledge it as a human right issue, replacing shame with self-worth and acceptance.

ABOUT
HUMAN NATURE IN LIFE AND REBIRTH

Inspired by principles of eco-feminism, the project “Human Nature in Life and Rebirth” reflects the nucleus of a sensitive, fluid and feminine relation to society, based on a model of sustainable development and awareness.

Promoting harmony, respect and wellbeing the project embodies a circular model of thinking that values the earth as sacred, recognising humanity’s intimate dependency on the natural world and embracing all life as valuable.

“Human Nature in Life and Rebirth” highlights the right of every being to live and to flourish, through diversity and interconnection, beyond the boundaries of human construction. Independently from its size and appearing, each part of the system represents a fundamental hearth of development within the web of life.

The images presented are symbolical representations, reflections of both myths and personal experiences, re-constructing the paradigm of communication on nature and culture, to promote information, preservation and connection of environments and species.
