Fragile, 2012

Iolanda di bonaventura

“Sometimes the city is a woman: she needs to bloom, to be defined; a woman to whom one needs to give justice.”

Iolanda is a young photographer and video maker, and a native of L’Aquila. Her work investigates female identity, exploring, in the specific case of the work presented for L’Aquila, the theme of fragility. In contrast with the dominant values of contemporary society, the artist chooses to emphasize the natural, inevitable and most intimate contradictions of human beings..
