Intervention in urban space, Brussels. After collecting thoughts and words of encouragements from women of several ages, origins, and sexual and religious backgrounds, the artist walks through Brussels’ public spaces and uses these texts for an imaginary conversation on her cell phone. In doing so, she embodies a form of women’s solidarity, contaminating the urban space with personal and plural experiences.

Anna Raimondo (born 1981, Italy; she lives in Brussels and works internationally) uses voice and listening as a platform for encounter, collaboration and exchange, as tools for the diffraction of identity. Questioning the limits between private and public, between genders and their connotations, she activates or deconstructs cultural practices to encourage and reveal the inherent potentials of fluidity in identity.
