During the Feminist Strategies week at a-venue I proposed a durational performance where I re-enacted two former performances: HUPIA(2015) and HUNT(2014). They both problematize and expose issues of gender and power structures where the female body is objectified carrying traces of violence, exoticism and oppression. I performed with a body that is notional, obscene and lewd from the perspective of a Swedish society through its symbols and gestures. l was curious to see how my political aims, artistic intentions and performance in public space could communicate implicit and explicit.
