Giulia Cerioli is an italian collage artist, and Master student in Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Granada (Spain) where she focuses her research on the myth of virginity.
Her series of Collages focuses on different themes, mainly related to women’s bodies and sexualities, together with a look on our relationships with the non-human world. Feminist literature, women erased from history, issues of reproductive rights and gender violence, heteronormativity and domestic/care work, have represented the main inspirations for her collages.
I also reflect on bodies’ nakedness, wondering why we celebrate it as art in museums, but severely censor it outside of it.
Donna Haraway fundamental ‘Staying in the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene (2016)’ inspired me to represent alliances between humans, animals and plants, both blending all of our bodies and overturning some speciesist power.
To conclude, I love making “blasphemous” things happen in churches.
