It’s a work built on site-specific research in the city, on the city and on the women that inhabit it.

The work is the first chapter of a project that the artist will expand to other cities in the world, which questions the relationship between space, gender, social behaviours, power, education and focuses on the daily lives of women.The artist asks a group of women of many different ages, sexual orientation, classes, genders, cultures, origins, to describe the city through the feelings caused by the spaces they inhabit, memories, stories and History.
Listening to the city’s spaces – which we often experience without hearing – guided by the voices of women. An auditory drift that leads the spectator to experience the crossing of different spaces, in the body of a woman. A remapping of the city, without considering functions and geography, but that is mediated by subjectivity and without the desire to be universal and objective.
With New Frontiers in the Well-Being of the Vaginal Ecosystem #1 Rome, Anna Raimondo questions feminism, both historical and unconscious, both routine and activist, which sums up the daily practice that guides the lives of women in the simplest actions, like walking or getting dressed, getting on a bus or bringing a daughter to the park, that bring various political nuances with them.
New Frontiers in the Well-Being of the Vaginal Ecosystem #1 Rome is an auditory work in the form of an installation for the gallery space which will then be turned into a different medium for the virtual space. The process that the artist created for the auditory and human mapping of the city will become a work that starts above all from sound as an act of interpretation of space, and then as material to be moulded for different outputs.
