PreHerstory Video Art
“I have come to an understanding that what we believe about our past,
shapes our view of who we are as humans, and how we live.”
While researching prehistoric sculptures and art objects from a creative and feminine perspective, processing information through visual language and academic publications, I have developed an understanding of historiography from a predominately intuitive standpoint. Fat, fertile, mother earth, Goddess, and Venus are among the many names given to the prehistoric art figures found around Malta and Gozo.
This perspective potentially changes radically if we assume that these objects were made by women.
In a female-centred culture rather than a male-dominated one, we can imagine a different life balance connecting the spiritual with nature.
