A woman performed in front of the lens, sometimes expressionless, and sometimes absent. A figure harmed, body and soul; never before had it been heard such sad poetry. Scattering scenes are frozen in images, where even the most delicate tissue tortures the flesh and imprisons the spirit. How much truth emerged, how many feelings exposed by the light of the developed. Pierced by a threatening and painful tone at the same time, the images of Cirenaica Moreira become the cry contained under the stereotyped veils of women.
As a theatrical function, the work of this creator levitates on stages built and manipulated to satiety. Performative acts caught in a format where the inert appearance, the silence and the absence of applause offer new connotations. Ingeniously paradoxical and instinctively ironic, Moreira tries to delineate the complexities and nuances of women as a social subject. Fragility, strength, fear and violence come together to connote the fragmented universe in which identity must be affirmed.
The nakedness of the female body is carefully pre-designed in its relation to the various signs. How not to be attracted by this tireless game of symbols? Nothing is naive or superfluous in the construction of this photo-theater. The author, through documentation of her own image, questions the plural reality that happens many times in the light of the eyes, and many others in the shadow of the psyche. With the subtlety and skill of one who dominates the trade, Cirenaica Moreira legitimates the photographic language as an apparatus of artistic representation. A work that, from the genius and authenticity of the discourse, continues to bear fruit to the occurrence of contemporary Cuban art.
