Within Art Paris Art Fair 2015, the Gallery Géraldine Banier presents the creations of the Italian artist Francesca Gagliardi. This artist loving of the work of materials questions through its works the ambivalent position of the Woman in our modern societies, rolled around between self-decision and constant fight for the control of her image.
Under the effect of the artist, the Woman takes up with a mythological past when, as in search of a "Golden age", she adopts the feature and the attires of the Amazon adorned with her shield in half-moon.
At the same time matrix and symbol, the chosen material occupies a central place in the approach of the artist. From bronze to crochet-work lace, from aluminum to leather, Francesca Gagliardi forges the metamorphosis of a woman forced in a freed woman. The act of creation itself celebrates then the found independence and becomes the messenger of desires in progress.
