Room-Sized. Performance-Installation in collaboration with artist Lisa Kaftori: swing, window, red carnations, transparency with the definition of ‘woman’ from Websters Dictionary, soundtrack. This piece is a criticism of the language and symbols traditionally attributed to women by our culture. Both written and oral language are seen as active elements. The sound track is a reading from the dictionary interspersed with the testimonies of women talking about their feelings of womanhood.
