La Loba
(2021 - ongoing)

“The wild nature has a vast integrity to it. It means (...) to draw on the innate feminine powers of intuition and sensing to come into one's cycles, to find what one belongs to."

Clarissa Pinkola Estés.

 

La Loba is the incipit, the first chapter of a project that addresses the myth of the heroic journey as a metaphor for awareness. A peregrination which starts from the primordial and instinctual female archetype and continues in chapter 2 and chapter 3 towards the search for the Sacred and a return to a life in harmony with Nature.

 

Beginning with a personal introspection, from the matrilineal cultural origin, the first chapter entitled La Loba extends to the search for the universal feminine, in order to reconnect with intuition and nature, from microcosm to macrocosm.

 

As the initiation into myth, the portfolio is a cathartic narrative between body memories, oneiric material and the narration of stories, together with the artistic practice.

I use self-shooting and performance to awaken ancestral images and effect a liberation from social superstructures.

The synthesis of this process, combining archetype, body and nature, generates a poietic activity through photographic narrative.

 

La Loba is a image map which evokes paths to reunite, between reflections, epiphanies and awareness, with one's own unique truth, stripped of conventions and conditioning.

 

 

Being connected to instinctive nature is the basis for all regenerations. The key to re-establishing inner, individual and social harmony is rediscovering ancestral values and returning to live according to their principles .
