Raging Bodies

I see this project as a never-ending exploration on the theme of female anger and rage. My aim is to develop a visual language, which explores the complexity between women and anger. So many women, including myself have struggled with that particular emotion. Mothers still teach their daughters to suppress their anger. When female anger is treated as a problematic aspect, woman turns against herself. When she turns against herself, it is always her body that is the victim. I want to explore how I can use the female body as a means of communication. Through short films, performances and improvisation as well as poetry and drawing, I aim to record woman’s inner world and the restrictive ideals that have haunted the minds of far too many generations. Times are changing but we are still taught ideals of passivity and silence. History has shown that when women find their voice, some people get uncomfortable. Maybe it is time for them to feel uncomfortable.
