DESCRIPTION

It was just in the "beginning" of the 20th century when the concept for "woman" started changing and became part of the outdoor world and society. This introduction has promoted the revaluation and constant restructuration of the concept of their personality, of femininity and their roll in society. The need of creating an idealized image that tends to swing on the surface of two poles of the woman character has remained intrinsic to it: Aphrodite; representation of sexual beauty, and Athena; representation of strength.
The intention of this show is creating a silent debate between the evolution of the female concept through the years and its multiple interpretations.
