Modern Sati / Inde / Floriane

When the Indian woman marries, she becomes the property of her in-laws and no longer belongs to her family. Ancestrally, if the husband died, she had to follow him into the afterlife. Sati was the act of a Hindu widow cremated on the funeral pyre of her husband to fulfill her role as wife.

The prohibition of this age-old practice was not enough to give indian women a family or social weight. Since then, the widow is no longer burnt at the stake but the tradition continues perniciously.

The artist allegorizes by the combination of the purifying smoky fire, the crepuscular light corresponding to time for thinking, a decorum marked with loneliness ; all calls for an awareness of the struggle to the respect of the fundamental human rights.
