from the series //Virgins: Alfreda, Anatola, Wiktoria//

from the series Virgins: Alfreda, Anatola, Wiktoria

Artist: Marta Deskur
Technique: lightbox
Measurement: 60 × 20 × 12 cm /×3/
Date: 2000

The lightboxes show naked women, visibly pregnant. Each has the artist’s own face. A pregnant virgin is a paradox which also quite clearly draws on the Christian tradition. If we delve deeper, it is apparent that the work questions the ethos of virginity in the modern society.
