How to become a woman if she's not going back to the origin? How can we not want
get into the mother's bowels and feel our body and rubbing the walls of the earth before going out into the world? To find out who we are we have to go back to the beginning and get lost in the dark, in silence, texture. We are separated by layers and layers with the outside, but once decided and found, we go out slowly standing like complete women with their own identity.
The beginning. The origin. The beginning.
My own room with bark and branches.
AUTHOR: Rocío Marín Navarro SPAIN
Rocío Kunst was born in Murcia in 1990, a daughter of a Murcia-born father and a mother from Madrid. Since she was a child, she has felt a natural inclination towards art, and her capacity for contemplation led her to study Fine Arts at the University of Murcia. However, it was at the EFTI School (Madrid) where she specialized in photography – which become her passion and vocation. Since then, her work has been displayed in galleries and cultural spaces in Murcia, Valencia, Malaga and Madrid. Her work has been awarded several times; being the last one a first prize of photography in the Certamen the Jovenes de Salamanca (2018) (Contest of Young Creators of Salamanca).
Her art work goes around the construction of identity through memory, spaces and psychological states. In her introspective and openly confessional photography, the self-portrait becomes present even in the absence of the artist: a dialogue in which the symbolic value of the image is essential. The refined aesthetic of its scenes, despite its apparent simplicity, offers a great depth of meaning in which the viewer plays an active leading role. There is also an aspect of gender perspective and this is just because the author creates her work from the gut of feminism, reflecting on her power and inviting women to build their own story.
