Grotta Profunda Approfundita

13 October 2018 – 6 January 2019

Based on her pronounced fascination with the role of women and their portrayal in myths, folklore, film and theatre as heroines, victims, sexual objects, mothers and witches, in Grotta Profunda Approfundita Jardin creates an extraordinary, absurd universe. Jardin is interested in iconic figures like the Virgin Mary, Bernadette Soubirous, Jeanne d’Arc and the Greek goddess Demeter – and especially in women of humble origin who have succeeded in achieving political, military or religious recognition.
