Vanessa Beecroft: Ponti Sister, 2001/ June/ 30., digital c-print
Performance at Vistamare Associazione Culturale/ Pescara
Vanessa Beecroft studied architecture and stage design before starting to arrange female bodies in museums and galleries. Being criticized by feminists, judging her work as pornographic, Beecroft herself is not interested in sexual provocation. She defines a stage-like space with strict instructions to be followed by her actors, sometimes generating an agressive atmosphere through the women`s passivity.
