Series | The beauty of the ephemeral
Series | Lilith's Daughters
The exhibition, presenting silkscreen collage and digital photography on aluminum, is inspired on the literary work by Erika Bornay, "Daughters of Lilith", which depicts the first woman created by God as Adam´s companion. The author explains the Legend of Litith, presenting two different stories about the Creation. The first version, were God created man and woman equal, at the same time and from the same land. That first woman was called Lilith. In the second version, submissive Eve was shaped from Adam´s rib, the first male created by God.
Cristina´s work has been strongly influenced by the women in her family. Within the context of three generations of Spanish society - Spanish civil war, post war, dictatorship, transition and democracy- women in her family have witnessed and helped to change the landscape of women in today´s society. This work is dedicated to all those women that made it possible.
Throughout her work she had often depicted the passage of time and its fugacity, ephemera of our lives. In this series, she portraits anonymous female figures but strongly defined within a social framework in which the woman appears as a symbol of this era and our contemporary visual culture. Her characters come face to face with concepts such as equality, nudity, violence and freedom.
