The female world, always privileged area of interest in the artistic research of Antonella Cinelli and source point of several works, offers interesting sparks for the study of the contemporary woman and her modern representation. The choice to realize works in traditional way integrates well with the new installation forms of contemporany art, characterized by use of poor materials, as iron wires and led lights shows the will of the artist to describe the modern woman contradictions and to create a true imagine of her. This is a completely new work, based on contrasts and oppositions.
