Giulia Lazzaron (Milan, 1992) by 13sedicesimi a fusion between art and publishing for an exclusive handmade in Italy collaboration.
“Iskra” embodies a contemporary Venus. The work reflects on the evolution over time of the female figure and the aesthetic canons that have accompanied it, to arrive at the instances of the “Body positive” movement, which promotes the conscious acceptance of one’s body. The artist wants to completely break down any type of prejudice against the female body; every woman has the right to feel like a Venus. We are all beautiful contemporary Venus. Blonde Aphrodite with blue eyes could have been the canon of the Renaissance, referring to that idea of an angelic woman that had already manifested itself with Dante, but it is more a philosophical concept than a real one.
Giulia Lazzaron’s muses are extremely modern, inspired by curvy female figures, characterized by a happy sinuous and fertile body. She investigates the most intimate aspect of Venus, placing the spiritual beauty of the goddess at the center. The subjects represented are hybrid venus, at the same time human beings and sea creatures and as hybrid figures they are archetypes of inner transformation.
