Sam Druant

Sam Druant focuses on exploring feminist themes in her artistic practice through the lens of magical thinking. She delves into the intricacies of everyday struggles and societal expectations, weaving them into alternative worlds. Her work often departs from personal experiences, expanding and transforming as they intersect with multiple references, ultimately evolving into artistic projects.

Sam’s project is trying to counter individualistic and androcentric society, with a focus on hormones and reproductive care. Looking at the research of Silvia Federici, she realized how capitalism played a significant role in the lack of knowledge, funding and development for this care. The loss of commons led to less land for people to come together in a safe space. The installation is a reaction to this and wants to offer a common space, to share experiences, tips and references. The intent is not to heal individuals but to create room for imagination around this topic and build connections.
