BOLLERA (2020)

Language builds the thinking and collective imaginaries.

This project deals with how the lesbian community has appropiated some forms of language that initially had a negative connotation, which have helped them to accomodate in those terms and completelly change the meaning of them.

Malena Hidalgo has produced a series of six self-portraits, while playing with the subject and object terms, with her representing both of them simultaneosly, pronouncing the word bollera which builds the project through those six letters.

Speaking from a personal perspective, being the personal always political.
