SOLO-EXHIBITION by ANTONY FACHIN
Concilio Europeo dell’Arte inaugurates the year 2020 – at InParadiso 3030 Gallery – with the new exhibition “Y LA CULPA NO ERA MIA” that gives voice – through images – to women of every country, religion and social class, to claim the right to be simply who they are and to do not represent a “victim-target”: they are women who choses to “stand up to every type of male violence, gender- based violence, violence of genders and to imposed social roles” that affect women.
The artist’s careful eye on the universe of female courage and pride, that are able to re-appropiate of their subjectivity by coming out into the open.
Antony Fachin, versatile artist that has been working for many years with CEA (painter, illustrator, sculptor, engraver, among the main fields he touches), has suggested many mutable, even ambiguous female roles and masks, but always recognizing the strenght and the emancipation of woman leading humanity to specific aims.
After attending the collective exhibition organized by Concilio Europeo dell’Arte “Look OF|ON Women”, the new solo-exhibition by Antony Fachin takes up again the current and social issue that Concilio Europeo dell’Arte firmly wants to introduce to its public through images: women who are victims of all kind of violence but that find the individual strength (subjective situation) and mostly and finally with the collective mobilization in the squares of many countries – to re-appropriate of their subjectivity, of their universal right to “be women”. The artist Antony Fachin does not compromise, he breaks the silence and paints the echo of loneliness, of frustration, of pain of women that are victims of violence.
The paintings appear to deafen the exhibition room, the stuck and empty eyes of silent women talk about the fear and the fright felt at home, an home perceived as a jail from which the escape seems to be impossible.
Fachin looks further, he fixes on paintings the bodies and the glances of women who scream at the mirror their pride to be simply who they are, alluding sometimes to an ambiguity: but these ambiguous feelings soon reveal to reflect the intimate reality of every human being, more than just women’s one.
“Y LA CULPA NO ERA MIA” is also the refrain of the dance of protest, become international, that goes with the flash mobs organized by women from all over the world: the exhibition’s title is a tribute to the group of women whom already famous slogans beat a text of claims that should be a common heritage but that have yet difficulties to emerge. Women’s marches screaming all together is impressive.
Impressive as the artwork of Antony Fachin.
