DIOSAS MADRES

“Diosas Madres” is a project directed by Ana Rius Roger, mother to a girl and a boy. She currently runs educational workshops for young girls about menstruation. In her working life she is a qualified lawyer.

The project in question will be a series of photos inspired by the style of Renaissance paintings featuring women and demonstrating the power they have in the creation of human life. As women need to have a job in order to survive within our consumerist society, the works will highlight the contrast between the transcendental act of giving birth and the routine of daily working life.

The series will consist of 12 photographs of women in the act of labour. The models who will be featured are women who work **and some of the photos will be set in their actual place of work.**

Some of the professions which will be featured are: a chef, a secretary, a gardener, a doctor, a waitress, a fire fighter, a cleaner, a lawyer

The photographers will be Leonardo Galanti (photographer and chef), Ana Rius (director of this project) and Paula Losada (photographer, actress and dancer) and

The timeline for completing the project will be between August and September to take the photos and afterwards they will be printed and there will be an exhibition.

Origen

The project comes from a reflection on the current disconnection between being a person in western society (with all that entails) and Nature. The work also is intended to draw attention to the lack of care and respect offered to women who have recently given birth. It is often the case these days that women give birth without really appreciating that it is a powerful, ancestral act, that also connects us with our animal instincts.

With this project the director wishes to show the duality a woman feels and experiences after giving birth; going through such a physically powerful and spiritual process and shortly afterwards, being confronted with the all-encompassing world of materialism and daily working life.

The director believes strongly that the act of labour is a rare moment of connection between the divine and the earthly. And that an experience so powerful requires a certain amount of time to fully assimilate. Women instead of being shown the respect, time and help needed after such an act, they are often forced to relegate this experience to their subconscious and continue trying to live their previous life; returning to work under the same conditions they had before after so much has changed. This can create a serious internal battle. So often during this time women can battle not only with the swift reentry to working life but with the expectations of others (regarding care of new-born baby) and their own instincts which may sometimes clash. Such a significant change in a woman´s life can often lead to problems for a woman and her mental and physical health.

The project could also be considered a critique of the amount of time permitted to women in Spain for their maternity leave, which is currently set at 3.69 months.

Calendario previsto

EThis project and its initial idea, was born with the first new moon of this year 2022. From the moment the idea was manifested, it has been growing and taking shape every time it was shared with the different women who are part of the project.

Currently we have assembled the team and we have everything on track for the final stretch, towards its materialization, consisting of the realization of the series of photographs. It is now that we are preparing all the necessary elements to make the project a reality. Now is the time that we really need your help to be able to carry it out!

The rewards for contributors will be sent from February 2023.
