UTERO INFERNALIS, 2019, Series of four non-institutional boards, printed on paper, wood and climbing rope, 110 x 100 cm
Born from a time when the correctly represented clitoris is only published in a middle school textbook at the beginning of the 2017* school year, Utero Infernalis is a fable.

Under my fingers, small authoritarian forms made of non-organic materials are revealed. These are small objects.
+ This one is smooth, spherical and cold. I’ve already touched it a thousand times.
It is by feeling every millimetre of it, in this in-utero sensory exploration, that I recognize this glass bead, light-coloured, a little transparent. It’s one of those that you can project yourself into and that offer a version of the entire universe when you look inside.
The Matrix has something to say..
