✨ Estrías y glitter para venerar la experiencia de la mujer ✨

Texto por Julio Vázquez — 22.Nov.2017

Dentro de las antiguas técnicas y arte japonés, existía una manera de reparar la cerámica rota, el Kintsugi; consistía en espolvorear las diversas grietas con oro, plata o platino. Pero no quedaba ahí, ya que era toda una filosofía donde se recibía la ruptura como parte de la historia del objeto, y con ello no se destacaba en lugar de ocultarse. Bajo esa misma línea, la artista Sara Shakeel, cuyo trabajo gira en torno a la intervención visual y collage, ha creado todo un movimiento que tomó impulso gracias al interés de Cosmopolitan y Yahoo: #glitterstretchmarks, tanto en Instagram como en Twitter, el movimiento comenzó con dos piezas de la artista donde veneraba y honraba a las estrías llenándolas de glitter, remarcando que son símbolos de la experiencia y el crecimiento de la mujer, por lo que no habría razón de esconderlas o buscar quitarlas.

A partir de ello, Sara comenzó a solicitar a sus seguidores a enviarle fotos de sus estrías, y con ello intervenirlas para ir acrecentando la serie, la convocatoria fue tal que en pocos días llegó a tener más de 300 mails, entre los que también se encontraban las fotografías de algunos hombres y sus marcas. Por otro lado, algunas cuantas mujeres han sentido la inspiración y deciden empezar a intervenir su cuerpo por sí mismas.

I have never felt so powerful & liberated and so fucking proud of mystretch marks in my entire life !!! From where I come from & live , To be on the chubby side or to even talk about stretchmarks is not something one is proud of, i have seen my stretch marks grow from the day i started putting on weight, I'd be honest even before uploading it I was thinking why would anyone be interested in my concept of stretch marks turned into glitter or crystals!!! My god I was so wrong! Amazing people and women are already doing such an amazing job with representing these stripes and cellulite!!! Thank you for a beautiful response everyone!!!! I have been featured on @cosmopolitan & @yahoostylebeauty link is in my story. Support and love yourself for who ever you are! Cause there is someone out there sharing the same feelings as you are! There is one thing for sure YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! 🌹🌹🌹🌸🌼🌻 #glitterstretchmarks #stretchmarks #happy #inlove #loveyourself #theweekoninstagram #instagram #tigerstripes . . This picture is by one of my amazing followers who was brave enough to share this with me!! Thank you love!!!! #theweekoninstagram #whereicomefrom

This is inspired by @sarashakeel here on Instagram ✨ I’ve been extremely embarrassed and ashamed of my stretch marks ever since I got them, especially this year since I’ve gained a lot of weight, but after seeing the beautiful works of art @sarashakeel created it completely changed the way I view my stretch marks. As I was applying the glitter to them and then seeing it all finished I thought “Woah… this is fuckin beautiful” like all the unique designs they make and how they sparkle in the light ✨✨ It reminded me of a mermaid or a super glam tiger lol which is what I actually used to call them, my tiger stripes 🐅 Anytime I would see them on someone else I literally wouldn’t think anything of it because it’s completely natural and you can’t control it so who cares and why should I view mine differently? So now anytime I look down and see my thighs, I just see beautiful glittery works of art… partially because I’ll be having glitter stuck to me for probably the rest of the year, but also because I no longer view them as ugly, it’s a part of me and I can’t change it so wassup stretch marks? #glitter #makeup #art #glittermarks #glitterstretchmarks #stretchmarks #selflove #loveyourself #sarashakeel

“Nunca me había sentido tan poderosa, liberada y tan jodidamente orgullosa de las místicas marcas en toda mi vida. De donde vengo y vivo, estar del lado gordito o incluso hablar de estrías no es algo de lo que se esté orgullosa, he visto crecer mis estrías desde el día en que comencé a engordar. Estaba pensando, ¿por qué alguien estaría interesado en mi concepto de las estrías convertidas en glitter o cristales?, dios mío, estaba tan equivocada. Las personas y mujeres increíbles ya están haciendo un trabajo asombroso con la representación de estas rayas y la celulitis. ¡Apoya y ama por quien eres!”, comentó la artista en sus redes.
