An international feminist network explores the paradox surrounding intimacy, rooted in sexism and oppression.
Through collective laboratories, exhibitions, digital projects, podcasts, and historical studies,
we strive to weave transdisciplinary research and creation between womxn who are isolated in their life and invent together new formats of art projects to go beyond intimate issues without any limitations.
All the artists who join all our projects are focusing their research on the study on what intimacy is, from a psychological, political, sociological and anthropological perspective.
Intimacy implies reciprocity, transparency, unreserved exchange. The Heroines follow these principles in their process of work since Intimacy is based on a very close familiar and effective connection with others as a result of a number of common experiences.
Their management is therefore based on flat hierarchy and these values unites the artists who joined every year THE ENCLOSED GARDEN, THE W(E)AVE and THE ROOTS.
Here, we strive to dismantle explicit and implicit forms of censorship in order to better apprehend together the social and ontological resonances of intimacy in contemporary society.
Together, let's open the door of the enclosed garden,
this inner world, the shelter, the prison or the pyre, the greenhouse.
With such willful extravagance, gardening the unconscious, providing every reason to let go its hold, from beating heart to wild grasses, immersing in the heart of female psychology, gardens of quills,
all the selected artists of this annual event know well how to bewitch,
