Leonora Carrington: trauma, redenção e o noivado consigo mesma

Thiane Nunes

Resumo


Parte de minhas pesquisas sobre arte moderna trata de situações de interrompimento e perturbações na carreira artística de mulheres, que por motivos de misoginias estruturais, acabaram vivenciando experiências não apenas de impedimentos, como severos tipos de traumas. Este ensaio examina o contexto da artista mulher impactada com eventos traumáticos e violência imposta em uma sociedade patriarcal. Meu posicionamento é da ordem da contestação de poderes, ainda que possa oferecer reparação e integração histórica. Após algumas análises pontuais, apresentarei a artista Leonora Carrington como um caso de redenção, consciência de si, auto reparação e domínio através da crença e da sustentação de suas práticas artísticas.

Abstract

Part of my researchs on modern art deals with situations of interchange and disturbances in the artistic career of women, who, for reasons of structural misogyny, ended up experiencing experiences not only of impediments, but also of severe types of traumas. This essay examines the context of the female artist impacted by traumatic events and violence imposed in a patriarchal society. My position is in the order of the challenge of powers, even if it can offer reparation and historical integration. After some specific analyses, I will present the artist Leonora Carrington as a case of redemption, self-awareness, self-repair and mastery through the belief and support of her artistic practices.
