Persecuted

Video Art / 2020

Synopsis

For many generations pleasure has been taken away from women and, instead, we have been taught to despise our bodies and especially our "Yonis" (Hindu name for vulva), allowing patriarchy to transform it into a big taboo. Female pleasures are directly related to women's creativity. A woman without pleasure is another woman burned and annihilated by patriarchy. Persecuted is a psychedelic ritual video dance, a witchcraft, an ode to women orgasms, fluids and waters. In a junction to the myths of the Monster-Goddess Baubo (Greek), Kali, Durga (Hindus) and Rangda (Bali), the female comes on patriarchy's face.
