Leave Her Solo was born from the necessity of support for feminine creativity not found in societal patriarchal structures. The interactive sculptural installation presents the creation of temporary introspection as a response to an excessive societal external control on women behavior and to the ways we are raised. This is my view on the idea of the need for a room of one’s own, as proposed by Virginia Woolf. It is also my approach to the “Homing: returning to oneself”, proposed by psychoanalyst and storyteller Clarissa Pinkola Estés. It proposes to move the search for support inwards, as an energizing private shelter that allows us to then go outside and put our ideas in practice, expressing ourselves in an authentic manner.
