Femmes sans tabous

Hundreds of independent art and museums spaces were forced to close due to the Corona-Crisis. In this series we are celebrating the fantastic artistic events that are right now sitting behind closed doors. The exhibition "Women without taboos" at doual'art brings together three artists whose different works break with the surrounding modesty and the taboo of the nude.

In this exhibiton it was important for doual’art to present a totally hidden aspect of the woman, often denied in her body and her intimacy. Arnold Fokam, Gabriella Badjeck and Edwige Ndjeng use in a more or less direct way, the metaphor of the “little flower” which is an allusion to the most intimate part of woman. One paints with acrylic on canvas the beauty of the woman, in a transcendence of reality, in relation to the marine environment. The second draws stories of women who sail between pleasure, sex, childbirth and motherhood. The third finally, shows the bodies of shameless women, who assume their imperfections.
