Simply Blood my Mind! This unique moment when the pain leaks down your pants and you just keep on going as if nothing has happened, with your best neutral expression shining on your face. Yes women, you are heroïnes, and it is time to tell it loud: yes we bleed, and there is no shame in it! …or not anymore. The reality once more falls into foolishness. We can’t pretend it doesn’t exist, and it doesn’t make us more intelligent, either.
Behind this impulsive reaction of a daily life that culminates in this glass of water on a monthly basis, grows the idea of the project Blood my Mind.
The composition and harmony of the colours empowers the balance of the image choice Vanessa went for, delicately accompanied by the subtitled art work from Susana.
This colour photography series is being produced by Ddpendientes in El Prat de Llobregat, Barcelona, in February 2020. Thanks to the collaboration of Davilchico with the location scouting.
It was printed for the event Blood Pussycat Blood Blood! on the 21st of March 2020 at the OCCII in Amsterdam. Unfortunately, the event was postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions and so the prints were finally shown in an online format.
This series is the forth in the common project from Ddpendientes Black and Red and White. The project compromises of a new session every five years.
This series is being presented in the virtual gallery ArteBinaria, in augmented reality ‘allowing the viewers to watch in real 3D our pictures from any of their locations‘.
