«I begin from them because I am convinced that these “normal” everyday stories, undervalued because they don’t have the defect of suffering or the prestige of fame, protect the new seeds of evolution that I hope our planet will one day see. » — Maria Clara Macrì
In Her Rooms explores the relationship between empathy, intimacy and the contemporary representation of women. In an attempt to give women back their nakedness by untying the body from its sexual objectification, the author has travelled the world immortalizing girls of different origins and social backgrounds, naked in their bedrooms.
That intimate, magical, liberating place where self-discovery takes place, as Virginia Woolf recounts in A room of one's own.
The result of this visual research is a series of portraits and diary pages written by the author herself, that shed light on the complexity of a new global female gaze which is challenging gender dichotomies and pre-established categories.
