Mujer Vacío

My face is of little importance, but it is what you really want to see.
Here it is, soon, it’ll be gone.
You know my story but you don’t remember.
I am Venus’ companion, daughter of the Sun and the Earth.

I had a temple. The flowers and fruits you can imagine...
I have woven all your eyes can see.
I slept among myrtles, cloth hanging on my hands perpetually.

My power spread out to all pleasures of life.
But it got wiped out as soon as somebody looked at or touched me.
Because, when someone stares at us, it exerts a power much greater than we can ever imagine.
With a glance you belong to the observer.

I am close to being nothing, and therefore I am the entirely
I neither manage pleasures as Venus, nor I launch into the sea blaming my torso as Escila.
I am devoid of matter.
Now, nobody can see or name it, touch or change it.
It is only me who decides my metamorphosis.
I keep on weaving and nothing turns me into a spider.

My presence is endless.
You could be myself.
Nothing enslaves me any longer.

The film takes the viewer on a journey to experience a woman’s pilgrimage, where she relinquishes all of the burden of her image to finally get to deeply meet her inner self. It is there where she finds the union with all women.

For this collaboration I designed three costumes based on Berta-Blanca T. Ivanow’s sculptures emphasising the emptiness of a feminine countenance through movement inside de fabric.
