Stigmarella, the Story about the Girl and the Shoe
It is therefore very difficult to define, either substantively or visually. All feelings of stigma develop very early on during primary socialisation, when a child develops his perspective towards the world and himself. This exhibition primarily addresses children and their parents using a modified version of Cinderella, the fairytale by the Brothers Grimm. The tale emphasises that all people can, in fact, be perfect with their imperfections if they truly believe they can be. The story also implies that trust, true love and modesty have a greater value than money and possessions.
The presentation of the animated fairytale will be held in the safe and comfortable environment of a gallery, where time and space will be perfect for relaxation. A humble wish is whispered as you exit the gallery: ‘Be human’, wish, based on real-life experience that the author Renata Ažman describes in her book Yoyo.
Authors of the project: Renata Ažman, Pika Novak, Saša Kerkoš, Jure Likeb, Zoran Arizanovič, Timon Leder, David Mosquera, Boštjan Botas Kenda, Sara Božanić, Maja Matič in Sebastian Montoya Vega.
