Andi Kacziba

Prendi il mio cuore/Take My Heart. As well as my liver, my kidneys; take all my organs, provided they still have value, of course. Inspired by Sappho’s famous poem Take my heart and take it away, the Hungarian artist Andi Kacziba (1974) provocatively invites provocatively invites to the Raffaella De Chirico Contemporary Art Gallery in via Farini, 2 in Milan from March 8th, Women's Day, to 25th to take her vital organs. What could have a woman, who at the age of 50 has made unconventional choices that are not widely supported by society, to offer society?

Having partially overcome the stigma of not having children (it is estimated that 22.5% of Italian women born at the end of the 1970s will end their reproductive cycle without children), the demand is for personal success through career and work, an area in which gender equality has not yet been achieved; women earn less than their male colleagues and are 30% less likely (even without children) to get better paid jobs than men. So what happens if a woman has failed or does not wish to become successful at least professionally? Andi Kacziba has created a series of polaroid pictures in which the artist offers herself and her organs to the visitors as a sacred action/gesture. The organs shown in the polaroid take on the form of three-dimensional sculptures made of ceramics and ropes.

The exhibition, curated by Raffaella De Chirico, opens and ends with a doormat located at the entrance to the gallery, on which Andi Kacziba has imprinted her supine image: the artist will therefore be trampled by visitors, a performative act and a metaphor for a rather common action. She is a doormat-woman, the definition used to describe a woman who allows others, often a male, to hurt her, to crush her personality and sensitivity, to trample on her dignity.
