Inspired by Virginia Woolf's influential essay from 1928, this selection of artworks presents an exploration of the notion of space linked to creativity.
In her influential essay A Room of One’s Own (1928), Virginia Woolf advocates for women’s freedom of expression, stating that “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.” This apparently practical advice is in fact a demand for a space (both physical and mental) to develop one’s creativity, which at the time was available to male writers, artists, and thinkers, but not to women. Nowadays, Woolf’s text still resonates in women’s fight for equality, as the “room of one’s own” becomes a real and metaphorical environment in which women can feel safe, respected, and valued. In this selection of artworks, several female artists explore the notion of space linked to creativity (the studio), society (the city), privacy (the home), and identity (the room). These spaces are set as the static backdrop of a story or become fluid, subject to change and mutation.
