What’s the real construct behind the notion of ‘female hysteria’? Were ‘mad women’ diagnosed as such actually born mad, or did their circumstances fuel the madness?

The portraits presented in this exhibition are the result of many months locked up in my studio with the ghosts of 20 mad female artists (all of whom have strongly influenced my work and positionalities), analyzing their lives and illnesses in order to answer a wide spectrum of questions regarding the possible correlations between creativity and derangement.
