Ancient Greek philosophy differentiates main conceptual forms and distinct words for the Modern English word love: agápe, éros, philía, philautia, storgē, and xenia.


Storge [“store-jay”], or familial love, is a kind of philia pertaining to the love between parents and their children. It differs from most philia in that it tends, especially with younger children, to be unilateral or asymmetrical. More broadly, storge is the fondness born out of familiarity or dependency. When we hear the word love, the typical final scene of a romantic comedy comes to mind, that film that talks about a fantastic “love”, almost selfish, practically idealised and generally hetero-patriarchal and normative.


But love is not that, at least for me, love is the delicate and imperceptible gestures that happen to us every day, whether it is a call from your mother or the smile of a stranger, it is those purely altruistic acts that complete our lives. purely altruistic acts that complete our existence. My work speaks of these small details of love, of an alternative love that we tend to overlook. This analogic series is about the love in a cotidian way, the love for a sister, a granny or the love for the little details in our day to day.

The artist has created a powerful series of three photographs that explore the
transition of the female body, the issue of childhood sexualization, and the complex search for identity that many women face. Drawing on Simone de Beauvoir’s
famous statement that “one is not born, but rather becomes, a woman,” the work challenges society’s role in shaping female identity and the pressures that women face to conform to societal expectations.

The photographs feature the artist’s sister at the beginning of this transition, as
she grapples with the realization that she must begin to hide her changing body.
Through these images, the artist captures the vulnerability and confusion of this
pivotal moment in a young woman’s life, as well as the societal pressures that
can make this transition even more difficult.

The work speaks to the universal experience of female identity formation,
highlighting the challenges and complexities that women face as they navigate
the expectations and judgments of society. Through its intimate and personal
approach, the work encourages viewers to reflect on their own experiences and
the ways in which societal norms and expectations shape our understanding of
gender and identity.
