The Myth of Femininity

Natalia Kovachevski

2016 - Ongoing

The secrets of ancient female mysteries, around the archetype of the Wild Woman.

Men have always tried to tame women like she were wild creatures essentially related to Nature. Men seek to dominate women like they seek to dominate Nature. In the course of history, the lands were looted or burned like women were. The archetype of the Wild Woman was pushed back very far and the wild part of the women began to wither away.

We find this will in mythology, religion, the arts, beliefs, the media, etc. This denial of wild and rebel women is modern too, more than ever the vision that women have of themselves thanks, in particular, to advertising.

In my project, there are : the reference to mythology and the fact that it concerns the "wild woman", through this presumed entity, as a kind of rebellion to order. I wish to illustrate a world where women could be free, as real human beings, the entity of the woman, would recover her knowledge and meaning, her significant nature. A world in which this powerful feminine nature of which the reconquest, the reintegration in oneself, in each one, would be necessary to the cure of the whole humanity.

It is a claiming story about the liberation of women and a mythology that is both deeper around this same figure of femininity. I am inspired by fairy tales and myths that can explain ancient feminine mysteries through folkloristic research. I represent this liberating savagery, this resurgence, which systematically reveals an initiatory message, allowing the development of the process of individualization.
