CRISTINA VELAZQUEZ // "dressed for everything i must be"

 

"I must bear children, I must clean the house, I must cook, I must be beautiful, I must keep good hygiene, I must have the right measurements, I must be a good lover, I must be a saint, I must be a healer, I must be…

Everything is a must—I must accomplish many chores in my life, in order to keep other people’s life going.  These responsibilities are like aprons that I must wear over my dress; I put one on then take it off and replace it with a different one.  There is a dress for every occasion in my life.  Each represents a task or an attitude I must posses in order to be a complete woman.  In this body of work I exposed all the different roles I must be successful at as a woman.  Although different religions and cultures impose these same ideas on women in different parts of the world, I too must follow each and every one of them.  They follow me like ghosts.  I must always be something for someone because I was born a woman and must fulfill my roles."
