In this project I will reflect on how the domestic space is a space to which women have historically been relegated, I will make visible all the work that women do, since it is socially invisible work, and I will make it visible in social terms and bring it out into the public light, into the "agora". In this project, as on previous occasions, I start from the language of action, drawing, photography, sound and video. Through the sum of these techniques I will deploy a wide constellation of images that I will develop throughout this process, seeking to observe, question and work on women's relationship with the domestic space. Through action subvert this confinement, taking the struggle out of the kitchen and the bedroom and into the streets.
I link all this to the research developed mainly in my doctoral thesis Domestic Space, Domesticated Body.
In my thesis I analysed how the concept of domestic space has evolved through different milestones in Western history, as opposed to public space, in order to understand the historical, religious, sociological and cultural roots of women's confinement in this sphere. By searching for the genesis of the very idea of "domestic" or "domesticity" in opposition to the idea of "public space", as this is where the circumstances that have made possible the isolation, confinement and disciplining of women for centuries and centuries are to be found.
Women's belonging to the domestic sphere (i.e. the space of the house) in our culture is a construction created by patriarchy, which sought to coerce women into subjection in order to guarantee the care of their offspring and the space for rest and protection (physical and emotional) of men, among other motivations.
All these works have allowed me to construct multiple discourses, somewhere between the artistic and the academic, and to create different visions that have allowed me to reinforce the idea of research in both senses.
