Before or After
installation with series of collages, glass, various dimensions
2011

The series of collages Before or After takes on a specifically western history of protest - the feminist demonstrations of the 60's and 70's. Slogans from the images of feminist protest are replaced with new ones, which seem to undermine the determination of the dissent they document. Left or right, magic or logic, yesterday or tomorrow, cool or hot are contradictions that take any programmatic logic away from the protest. However, the syntax of the new slogans indicates the yearning for absoluteness, the determination to take everything and demand the impossible. The conviction with which the women on the pictures hold the banners of their contradictions, uncertainty and confusion makes one think of the nature of protests and the real subversiveness in the apparent lack of a political program. Before or after is an experiment in actualization of a specific historical construction - the feminist protests and the liberation of the woman's body (and the feminized body of the crowd) from the "for or against".
