Virginie Foloppe

My video brings together two feminists, Olympe de Gouges and Angela Davis, across borders and centuries and through my body. Olympe de Gouges's blood did not coagulate. It flows in my veins. During his beheading on November 3, 1793, she declared: "The children of my country will avenge me". On January 21, 2017, during the women's march, Angela Davis made a speech of resistance to those "who proclaim the supremacy of the hetero-patriarchal white man", calling for an "inclusive and intersecting feminism" that invites us all to join the resistance, with, among others, our art. With my body, I wanted to make the connection between these two feminists, beyond centuries and borders.
