TAKT Artist Residency: A Woman & a Public Place, 2011

Client:

Takt Residency, Berlin

Year:

2011

In winter 2011, the artist participated in artist residency at TAKT Berlin. During that time, she explored the notion of a woman’s body in a public space and modesty culture. The artist was seen performing contemporary dances underneath a transparent veil in public spaces as well as allowing her body to be touched by the public during the exhibition. She opened that, with the use of tape, the public can make a mould of her body – something that appeared like a cocoon which she could step outside of and find a sense of rebirth from society’s moulds and labels.
