SEGNI: the photo exhibition against violence on women

SEGNI is a photographic and educational exhibition. The exhibition is an educational, photographic and communication project. It focuses on the theme of violence against women. Its aim is to raise awareness among young students and provide them with ways to contribute to the prevention of the phenomenon. Photography has the power to shake us out of our habituation and teach us to be outraged at all forms of abuse.

The exhibition includes 33 photographic pictures and specifically displays 42 shots.
With a gaze defined as “intimate and professional”, they described in pictures and texts the testimonies of a number of women victims of domestic violence. In other words, these stories describe moments of everyday life that are understandable to everyone and often more common than people think. They talk about women who want to help other women not to remain silent any longer, despite the effort. For example, all too often, victims of violence do not confide in others. This silence and the lacerating loneliness of the victim amplify the torture.

Who are the creators of the art exhibition?

The authors are photographic artists. Simona Ghizzoni used the technique of self-portrait mediation to relive the stories on herself, retracing her experiences. Ilaria Magliocchetti Lombi, on the other hand, put the focus on the places, objects and familiar. Spaces where violence broke out. What unites each shot is the attention the lens pays to apparently negligible details. Above all these ‘Signs’ should in fact be clues to identify violent behaviour or dynamics.
