Caixaforum, Plaza Weyler, 3
Forever by Tanit Plana

It has been almost forty years since Sheila Rowbotham said that "we know ourselves through images made by men," referring to the representations of women produced and broadcast by the media and cultural industries.

However, these images, far from eroded or exhausted, have become firmly established in the collective consciousness of women, and have done so because of the fascination and pleasure generated by its development of femininity.

"Forever" revolves around one of those celebrated symbols of feminine imagery, the wedding dress, to explore the universe of meanings associated with the marriage icon and with it, the married women.

"Will you marry me?" Is the recurring question with which Tanit Plana challenges to women (single, married, widowed or separated) of Tarragona, Lleida and Palma de Mallorca to invite them to take part in participatory activities carried out in those cities.

Thus, women are invited to tell details that recall the day of the wedding, pose in front of the camera in unusual places, carry out small metaphorical actions, and perform their routine tasks, etc.

Each of these unique interventions, besides referring to the respective particular experiences, articulates expanded lines of thought about imaginary women and couples, beliefs and traditions, standards of beauty, infatuation and romantic love, coexistence and everyday life, memory and forgetting.
