This work is an investigation on the woman, our body and the creative processes that originate in the uterus. All the women who appear in this work belong to a group of women from Menorca, called "Hermagas de Luna" in which we meet at each new moon to share as sisters, help and empower each other, healing our body and our feminine lineage. Through these encounters we connect with our bodies, specifically with the uterus, an empty space that needs to be created by its own nature, be it life or pure creativity, in order to fill and feel complete. The photos I present here show bodies and forms that serve as vehicles for the spiritual beings that inhabit within us, the eternal feminine. Bodies that are often used as disposable products are seen in this work as the recipients of the process of birth and life. A feminist plea for self-knowledge, through acceptance and self-love.

This exhibition was shown in the streets of the small town of Sant Lluis, where my mother is a native, on the occasion of Women's Day 2018. My mother was one of those women who 34 years ago decided to become a single mother, suffering at the time from the incomprehension of her neighbors.

The exhibition created controversy, censorship, debate and lively criticism, for me, as the author of these photos, some of these comments were a surprise and gave me a lot to think about, I thought I felt like my mother felt 34 years ago under the same incomprehension, and although at first the criticisms stunned me, with time I have come to the conclusion that the best way to overcome misunderstandings is to expose them again. The debate is open again.
