The well-known tale Beauty and the Beast is focused on the fascination that the animal and primordial instinct plays on women, with allusions to female sexual initiation, and in general to the relationship between human and animal. Niba's artistic domain is populated by little cats, rabbits, and music box and carillon's dolls that bring us back to the tale's atmosphere and to all the "objects of affection" typical of our childhood. But all around these objects, inorganic and empty, a woman's body emerges, without a defined face, of an oneiric beauty, dressed up with tight latex dresses with hinges and lace. Niba's sculptures are full of aesthetic apprehension, with an insistent fluctuation between internal and external, feminine and animal, reality and fiction. Text in English and Italian.
