About my artwork

The artistic work that I have been developing for some years is focused on the concept of identity. This concept is declined, in all my works, through the use of my image. There are different aspects of the concept of identity which I have considered in my artistic research, such as: the sexual identity; the capacity of perception of ourselves; the reconstruction of identity’s idea through the personal and collective memory; as well as the influence of media in the contemporary culture for the definition of identity.

I mention of the text - interview, of the journalist Claudia Barana. This resume very well my work.

…“Emptied, without bones or muscles, the bodies multiplied and become the ground where the artist’s experience took root.
They are latex casts, the images of the body that repeats itself, shows itself, and splits. It is only a thin porous membrane through which we perceive and are perceived. Skin – bodies that demonstrate evolution and aging, that represent the limit, the diaphragm that separates us from others but at the same time allows us to communicate with them. To adapt to Wilma kun’s artistic reserch, the skins are compressed to fit into a transparent box or expanded to become a sculpture, a curtain, a carpet, a cushion or simply a mask. The brasilian artist makes a series of casts of her own body using an artisan method: she waits patiently for the latex and rubber wrapped around her body to take shape and make the invisible become visible. Year after year she sees her figure change. A process that leads the artist to think about her own identity and compare it with that of the viewers. “My body becomes an icon that allows me to talk about identity, mine and that of others. I am questioning the way we perceive ourselves and others. The representation we
have of ourselves.”…
