New picture of “The birth of Venus (today)” series - photoessay
The Birth of Venus, used prolifically in the European Renaissance there is an increase in the use of myth in a re-construction of the many realities and interpretations that this myth contributes.
Venus is a complex mythological character, worshiped and vilified equally, with characteristics attributed by the subjective interpretations of the moment, while Venus becomes a protective symbol materialized in temples, such as the one that Caesar erected under the invocation of the mother goddess. “The birth of Venus” is for me, a reflection on the freedoms that, through centuries of hard work and effort, European women have achieved for themselves. There is still a lot of work to be done, especially in an historical moment in which women's rights are constantly threatened in our communities. “The birth of Venus” is a look at our tradition, identity and European values where free women with full rights can continue to be born in the waters of collective consciousness.
