In July, 316 women from 40 countries submitted their statements about Isolation. Our mailbox trembled, this summer, in the face of so many powerful voices. We thank them all and we dedicate this exhibition to them. With this avantgarde online exhibition, we are weaving a dialogue between 31 women from 23 countries who would have never met without this project.

|| STATEMENT ||
We are experiencing a gigantic upheaval; a virus has revealed, among other things, extreme xenophobia. So we ask ourselves: what is the place of a community, a network, a group, a family in this context? Heroines was created in 2019 with the naive but affirmed idea that an international and interdisciplinary network of women would invent collectively new forms of exhibition. Together we can dream up new stimuli for the audience, with new web scenography of exhibitions, new approaches to testimonials through artworks, voice recordings, texts. In this society where we are all locked up inside ourselves, we seek to empower the participants and help everyone open up.
We conflate secrecy and intimacy, thinking that we make our own decisions, when actually societal pressures make us shy, quiet, fearful, ashamed.
The pandemic era may affect the community-building momentum of Heroines; but isn't it an incredible coincidence, when our exhibitions focus on isolation, on enclosure, on what we hide?
