He founded the collective Hic Est Sanguis Meus – This is my blood, feminist manifesto – bringing together diverse artists of different nationalities who work on – and inspired by – the theme of the menstrual blood. His performative acts are violence of love, writes the critical Massimo Schiavoni: “Exhibiting is to put on display, offering the sight but also to take a risk and, not least, comment, interpret. Here the body is the object of all these meanings being first given in its originality, in his goodness and vulnerability, in its immense communicability. Paola Daniele performs a powerful physical exposure as a natural and symbolic nakedness. Bearer of an organic-physical sexuality with great visual impact, it touches intimate chords and secular at the same time … it shows a kind of initialization ritual expanded, expanded, as if by his own blood arises the purifying energy which summarizes two aspects: the protective-saving and the terrifying. Aspects of their life, through a nudity “soiled” by the blood-red, gives birth to loving empathy, passionate, almost erotic, accentuated by the color that means danger and violence but also the strength and courage of Mars “.
