Aida Silvestri: Unsterile Clinic / Even This Will Pass
"The contested terrains where art and advocacy meet, photography and human rights converse" - Renée Mussai
Aida Silvestri explores new approaches of documentary photography to address potent current issues of culture, ethnicity, identity, health and politics.
In this newspaper, two of her series addressing themes of human rights are featured. Even This Will Pass confronts the issue of human trafficking and the plights of Eritrean refugees whose voices often remain unheard. Unsterile Clinic directs our attention to gender-based violence and the widespread practice of Female Genital Mutilation.
In both projects, Silvestri skilfully combines photographic portraiture, visual activism and poems written in collaboration with her participants to provide harrowing personal testimonies.
Includes introductory texts and an essay by Renée Mussai, Senior Curator and head of Archive and Research at Autograph.
Dimensions: 41x 26.5cm
Published to expand on the 2016 exhibition Aida Silvestri: Unsterile Clinic at Autograph, London.
