How I Lost My Accent: Caged Identity by Cecilia Moreno-Yaghoubi – an epilogue to the artistâ€™s Black and White Series currently on exhibit in Miamiâ€™s Design District. Moreno-Yaghoubi will create five installations in the first floor vitrines at ArtCenter/South Floridaâ€™s 924 Lincoln Road building, using bird cages, found womenâ€™s clothing and photographs to produce abstract representations of gender identity.
With worn and dated antique dresses enclosed behind glass, vintage portraits of women will be scattered on the floor and birdcages will be hung in the place of their heads. Several human-like hands will appear to be escaping from the cages, symbolic of the struggle women have endured for equality and autonomy. In Caged Identity, Moreno-Yaghoubi strives to promote a new definition of todayâ€™s woman, reflecting upon feminism through hand-crafted manikins.
â€œWe live in a modern society where gender oppression still exists. Through my art, women can break free from social expectations and reinvent themselves in their own realm of possibilities,â€ said Moreno-Yaghoubi.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
