the project

Based upon the Henry James novel from which it takes its name, Portrait of a Lady is VI MMXX’s first digital project, envisioned by Alessio de’Navasques and entirely dedicated to the portrayal of contemporary femininity.

 

The words of Isabel Archer, the novel’s protagonist, are used as a form of beginning, of an ideal dialogue in which the lapse of time disappears, rather becomes a suggestion for the portrayed women, the trigger for new discoveries made through spontaneous connections in a process of free introspection: an abstract flow of creative inventive, that generates the telling of what each woman makes of herself.

 

Video and photography are used in a dystopic and undefined manner: envisioned as an open piece, the project allows multiple answers, re-elaborations, interpretations, and reactions of the female protagonists, ultimately creating an imaginary scenario that is home to the female artistic thought and expression.
