A collective project comes to the Blueproject Foundation that investigates the role of women in contemporary society, showcasing works by a diverse range of female artists through different forms of media including photography, drawings and paintings. The title of the exhibition is a reference to a 1975 interview by renowned Bulgarian-French philosopher Julia Kristeva titled ‘Unes Femmes’, in which she states that “the fact that we can generalise the female condition should only encourage each woman to express her own individuality”. ‘Herselves’ is an attempt to negotiate the female position of voicelessness and marginalisation, and deconstruct reductive stereotypes. Drawing on their own personal experiences, the artists come together to question the existing patriarchal structure in our society and redefine the position of women in terms of identity, intimacy and desire. It provides a platform to discuss female issues, allowing women to reclaim their absent voice, deliver their own message and assert their personal aspirations.
