The femininity through the Mediterrean
Laaroussa (“bride”) is a symbolic figure of the female pottery in Sejnane, in the north-east of Tunisia. She represents their femininity, their force and their fertility.
Today this figure risks to desappear. Some women denied to create Laaroussa for religious questions, SINCE sometimes Laaroussa is wrongly linked to an idol.
The project Laaroussa allows the meeting of two different places rich of clay: Pays d’Aubagne et de l'Etoile and Sejnane.
The exhibition will take you in the universe of these ceramists through sound installation, videos, pieces of contemporary art.
