The storyline of this project seeks to create a visual of the aforementioned conversation by decontextualising the traditional spatial design and occupation of the museum as an artistic space.
In collaboration with a group of 21 women, we have forged a narrative that aims to visually explore this storyline which speaks to the concept of breaking down and restructuring traditional perceptions of art presentation as well as the spatial designs and formats of artistic spaces. This was achieved through variations of sensory compositions created through the set design and movement direction which was captured in still images as well as video.
The space and set design is at the crux of the telling of this story as the shoot takes place between two rooms at the Palazzo Serbelloni in Milan. An assortment of chairs and couches are used as the main storytelling aids or props.
Through these mediums of movement, music, and clothing, the women embark on a journey of self discovery and liberation as they find themselves assimilating, and gradually becoming a part of a space constructed by them, for them, in which they wholeheartedly identify with.
