Emotional Masochist

video performance
costume by Strahinja Tabaković

The artwork in question raises thought- provoking questions about the formation and normalization of female sexuality in contemporary society. Through the use of an alter ego, the artwork takes a critical yet affirmative stance on this subject. Additionally, it explores the emotional aspect of this topic, specifically focusing on a type of masochist who serves a man's desires without receiving anything in return, yet still finds fulfillment in living out her dream. Overall, the artwork prompts us to consider the complex and multifaceted nature of female sexuality, and the ways in which societal norms and expectations shape and influence our understanding of it.
