Valentina Maz • DAY 1078

Video art, 2018, 06:50

Day 1078 is a self-observational video focused on the fears surrounding Sexuality—Sexuality and emancipation from socially imposed fears represented in Movement. 

It is a Movement towards the deconstruction of borders and forms and all the barriers a body can carry as a social structure. 

A Movement that embodies both liberation and chaos. One that contains elements of protest against established values and tries to break those by intrusion from beyond. 

The tabooed and hidden topic of Sexuality, buried under layers of guilt, can be traced in this work through a self-voyeuristic gaze. This is represented in the struggle of a woman who strives to reach inner freedom and open up the doors to her inner Sexuality, but at the same time, fuses her wishes with social and moral fears.
