STORY OF THE “I”

The representation of one’s own body in works of female artists is opposed to the stereotypical ideal of the female body which is a universal metaphor for male desire, power, and social control. In that way, representation of female sexuality in artworks of female artists became one of the key elements in finding new strategies in representing women that defied objectification as a norm in the production of artworks. In the video work, Story of the “I”, I’m using elements of performance art and fetishism that puts sexual focus on a nonliving object and represents the obsessive attention and adoration. The result is the creation of fantasy and different realities that are mutually intertwined.  Through literary references, like Story of the Eye by Georges Bataille, a symbolic object, the egg, is used as a fetishistic object that becomes a symbol of desire and fantasies that are often hidden and repressed. In that way, objects that are traditionally considered as non-sexual become objects of power and desire in the context of fantasy.
