    Description:

    This arpillera gives us an insight into the lives of contemporary professional women.

    We see a woman juggling the demands of family and professional life. Her ironing board doubles as a computer table and with her other hand she manoeuvres her hair dryer while balancing her phone. The stethoscope slung around her neck indicates that she is in the medical profession. The little girl stands close to her mother, seeking protection and security; a quintessential image of motherhood, which resonates in all cultures.

    Through this textile image, which was inspired by a cartoon drawing by Mónica Lalanda, Ana prompts us to consider the global journeys of women, and to reflect on how and where women’s experiences are at odds with our vision for women in the twenty first century.

    For this woman and for women globally, negotiating their multi-layered roles is a delicate, ever shifting, act of balance.
