ESPELHO Cláudia de Mello
23 November to 15 December
Espaço Cultural das Mercês
Monday to Friday | 2pm to 8pm
The "Espelho" project addresses the lack of representation of the female body and its repercussions. It examines the complexity of accepting and assuming one's own body, especially for women. It explores the author's difficulty in facing herself and accepting her body as her own, creating a space for introspection and self-discovery in front of the mirror. This project also highlights that the path towards body acceptance is not linear, often marked by small advances and significant setbacks.
