Using an audio in conjunction with a video which doesn’t have any image, Camila Rhodi combines a text spoken in a gripping voice with a continuous black screen. This confluence of audio and blank visual invites the audience in a natural way to create their own images in their mind.
The public display of intimate life details, with a non-fear of confronting sexual ethics, gender norms, and the tyranny of political correctness inspired by the so-called sex-positive feminist art. Fighting for the female sexuality deconstructing patriarchal structures of power and oppression, using the aesthetics of the ‘personal is political’ to the artistic practice as a method for empowerment.
As a storyteller, through a so-called confessional art, I manage to engage the viewer with my candid exploration of both personal and universal emotions, sometimes good, sometimes tragic as everybody’s life. I use to reveal some of the most intimate life details, connecting my work and personal life, sharing my intimacy. The often sexually provocative attitude connects my work with a feminist discourse.
