About The Artwork

Ariadna is a bronze sculpture of crossed legs woman a red thread braided between her fingers. The title refers to the myth of Ariadne’s thread. The myth says that Theseus, upon arriving in Crete, fell in love with Princess Ariadne, daughter of Minos, and she provided him with the means to kill the Minotaur, as well as a ball of thread or wool with which to find his way back. inside of the labyrinth. In the artist’s vision, this thread is the thread of one’s life. each person is artifice and responsible for his own destiny, since he literally has his own life in his hands. In the case of women, they have taught us that our lives always depend on someone else, they have educated us to wait for Prince Charming to save us, and to put order and make us finally happy. This piece invites reflection on affective responsibility, and the ability of each one to create what he wants, and the necessary struggle of women to appropriate this birthright. This piece has a black patina with golden details, polished to reveal the natural bronze color. The black patina is made from the green one, after a burning process, so magical and mystical. This sculpture is a serie of 6. The Sculpture is mounted on a marble base, The size include the base.

STATEMENT: Francesca Dalla Benetta's work is characterized by mixed anatomies and forms. Human faces and bodies are combined with different textures, skins and elements, giving rise to hybrid beings. Through her aesthetics, in balance between the classic and the surreal, the artist studies the themes of transformation, sense of belonging and self-perception, the ability to adapt, stereotypes and categorization. She searches for the fine line that separates personal identity from social conventions, sanity from madness, studying the differences between perception and reality. Francesca's figures are a look inward and out of control, they are a way of containing the uncontainable. The stories of each character, isolated in an intimate and unreal dimension, are reflections on the identity of misfits and the many facets of being. As an artist, her most important task is to communicate and stimulate a different way of feeling and thinking. She mainly resorts to sculpture because it is a lasting solidity in contrast to the volatility of the mind.
