SUBVERSIONES

November 11th – December 12th, 2020

On Wednesday, November 11th, the solo exhibition by Estibaliz Sádaba Murguía (Bilbao 1963) titled “SUBVERSIONES” opens at AlbumArte, independent space for contemporary art in Rome. The show will be on view until December 12th. The artist also took care of the curatorship of the exhibition, as often happens in her projects. 

We met Estibaliz when she was in residence at the Real Academia de España in Rome, in the winter of 2018 – 2019, and we immediately began to talk about a possible shared project, having always been open to the feminist question. By planning her exhibition for 2020, we realised we were about to end a year that would have seen only female artists in the programme. But then, with the effects of the pandemic, a lot changed and the projects overlapped or got postponed, interrupting that random peculiarity.

AlbumArte continues to look into what we have seen being underestimated or abused during the health emergency and, in this regard, we cannot help but feel the need to report how women have been treated in our country. Not only in the private sphere, where the traditionally gendered role of care has been abundantly exploited, even beyond the expected, or the dramatic increase in domestic violence occurred during the lockdown but also as women have been silenced and excluded within the public sphere, for example when they haven’t been included in the government Task Force or all the time’s society tried to find a way forward without consulting them. Here in Italy, several informal pressure groups formed, we have signed petitions and complaints with often – but not always – decisive results. And it is precisely the question of the woman and her isolation within the domestic and her marginalization from the public sphere, and the consequent unequal division of power, that the Basque feminist artist wants to investigate with her solo exhibition at AlbumArte, in which a series of works will be presented. Working with different techniques, such as photography, collage and video, the artist’s work has focused on investigating this relationship from a experimental perspective. An artistic practice that has always integrated feminist theory and activism, with the desire to create networks and establish genealogies through actions, in which the body becomes an instrument, a place of experimentation, and which are then subsequently reworked and reconstructed through various processes, such as editing in films, post-production in photographic work or the unexpected reassembly of stereotyped images.

The unreleased video that gives the title to the exhibition, that can be translated as “Domestic Subversions”, began as a research during her residency at the Real Academia de España in Rome (2018-2019) and has been realised specifically for the exhibition. The artist starts from a reflection on how women have been relegated to the “domestic space”: a space of family refuge in which men rested after their “exposure” to the public space, and in which women in the meantime had took care of the children and the family assets and which becomes a place of psychological and social confinement. She worked with the texts of two important Italian feminist thinkers and militants of the 70’s, Silvia Federici and Mariarosa Dalla Costa, who both participate in the video, theorising on ways to reinterpret the domestic space, thus seeking an egalitarian space that allows women to generate a new way of interaction and socialisation. An exhibition on how to subvert this space of confinement, and take that struggle out of the kitchen, into the streets, claiming a place in the public space more than its due: you can’t start over without women!

The exhibition was created in collaboration with Real Academia de España en Roma and the Fundación BilbaoArte Fundazioa.
