THE TIED POEM (Ytaelena's Installation) @MAPP December 2008


And I looked me
in the mirror,
and the sea
came out
of my eyes

(Yta's poem)

"The tied poem", by Ytaelena López
Mixed media
This installation is made as a reflexion about the gender violence. The voice of the woman (represent in the poems) is tied with robes to a physical condition (the tree). Though this way, the woman is exposed to the humillation to made public her intimacies (represent in the underwear), unable to do nothing.
The result? the gradual physical and emotional disintegration, the annihilation of her femininity.
