THE WOMAN BODY SELFIE EXPERIENCE - Woman Body seen by herself

The female body has always been one of the most represented themes in art history, commonly by male artists.
Looking for a new look at this type of representation the WAC intends to develop a virtual project having as its theme the way the woman sees herself and how she relates to her own nudity.
Photographic or video projects based on artistic self-representation are intended.
As selection jury women artists or curators who have, in some way, this concern as the theme or interest in the same will be invited.

Forms of participation:

Photography - minimum size: 2000x1000 pxls, jpeg, 72 dpi.
Video - minimum settings: 1280x720 mpeg4, H264, time 1mn.


The virtual exhibition will run in parallel with that of the Fonlad Festival

The Fiction Artist Project was born in 2005 in the context of the Fonlad Festival. The first images were developed between 2003 and 2005. In a first phase the images were constructed in the context of a set of images called Erotic Series, which were realized during several years (concretely between 1988 and 2007). Of this first group of images (10 concretely), only 3 would end up being part of the first edition of the Fonlad Festival. And it was in this context that the first fictional artists emerged.
With the development of the Unknown Artist Project and the respective Virtual Museum, the project can see light through the "Fake Festival" in 2010. In 2011, 8 more images will be published between 2007 and 2011.
Fiction Project is a fictional project in which all images - produced by artist José Vieira - were attributed to fictional characters. Some of the characters even had a biography and email, in the sense of giving credibility to it.
However, this idea was abandoned in 2010 when the project was first published. Only names and nationalities were retained.

In partnership with the Web Art Center, FONLAD Festival presents "Video Art Supports" an on line exhibition centered on the relationship between video / camera and support / subject. In this context, among the 20 works presented, is possible to observe two scan lines: the relation with the body / subject and the relation with the object, not always with a very clear distinction. Subject and object are merely "supports / brackets" of the idea(s) that "flow" through the artist camera.
