Lucy Zevallos is the first international artist we have ever represented at Femaissance. The Peru-based artist first connected with this project via Instagram, where she shared these photographs of her aunt, a woman she only met following the death of her father. Our inclusion of Lucy in Proserpina showcases the power Instagram has to establish connections across borders, and bring powerful tangibility together in real life.
From Artist: "One of the things that I always stop to contemplate is clothing because it expresses so much of a person, even though we have not met them. Sometimes it transmits more than what the person can say. The attire of nuns is one of those attires that matches this description. I do not need to see the face of the person to know what they represent. It is an attire that even out of its usual context, allows me to understand or question what it expresses and that lets me appreciate their vocation. A garment with a strong symbolic charge, a commitment to spirituality, and a detachment from conventional life."
