Before: SO QUIET THE PERFORMATIVITY OF A PUSSY by Maria Katsikadakou a.k.a Maria Cyber (director present)
Greece / Norway 2018, 8 min, no language
Has a pussy it’s very own performance? Maria Katsikadakou (aka Maria Cyber) outlines the performativity of the pussy, in an 8-minute video art. By claiming a part of the visibility pie, in contrast to the plurality of the information and images of dicks, the pussy is here, in close ups, raw and naked, in a big screen covered all by it. The title, as well as the images the director uses, shows us the actions of the pussy.
