I am a collector and founding member of Women of Crypto Art (WOCA). I recently saw a Tweet from @anloremi looking for underrated artists to feature. There are many talented women artists who could be featured on SuperRare.
I would like to suggest a feature for Cicatrici E Baci @cicatriciebaci and her collection ‘scarkisses.’
We all have scars. They often remain voiceless and without recognition. The ‘scarkisses’ collection is a narrative and interactive project that tells stories of human scars; they are past wounds, embroidered into our life, experiences that have shaped and empowered us. In sharing scars and stories, we embark on a visual journey of self-discovery and create a new story we can share with the world. Those stories unfold together, while evoking emotions very personal to each storyteller.
We are everyday heroes and we should be recognized as such. Every scar deserves a crown!
The photo-collages are not only portraits of scars but of the healing processes. They celebrates people’s strength highlighting impressions and sensations that remain suspended from a time stolen from everyday life.
Here is an article written by one of the participants who is an amputee: Scarkisses.
