In the Shape of a Woman
(1970-1986)

"My travel start with the female.
The contour of a woman delineates
my path, the groundwork of my researches. The female body as the first map, the first geographic data. Feminine, at the same time, local and universal. The settings multiply and disintegrate in fragments of lived and felt experiences. The photographic camera is my tool of documentation. Silkscreen is my brush."
