Den VITA#9. "Impediment / Wilke"
”Impediment”. Wilke used unconventionnal materials in her work because traditionally women did not have access to art supplies. She is known for exploring issues of feminism, sexuality and sensuality and felt that her beauty was an impediment to understanding her work. This changed in the early 1990s when Wilke began documenting the decay of her body ravaged by lymphoma in ”Intra Venus”.

Den VITA project was to work on single, white, second hand objects and be inspired by women artists, crossing generations and artistic bransch. Some activists, some early pioneers, some simply demanding to be recognized for their work. But according to me, all feminists despite rejection of the term. Each object is one of a kind & handpainted!
