The artist displays her personal vulnerability by offering completely nude self-portrait with no retouch. Of particular importance for the author is the question of vulnerability of female body nowadays. Despite considerable achievements of the XXI century, we should be honest to admit that woman still does not owe her body: depending on her origin, it belongs to father, husband, family, Sharia Law, advertisement, corporations, brands, complexes, struggle for perfection and external viewpoints, but, unfortunately, not to woman. The author strives to stimulate the audience to reflect on this issue, while letting the viewers to independently decide on the necessity of reconsidering the existing stereotypes and search for personal point of vulnerability.
The project is relevant for our time and society, the problem, which is studied here, has deep penetration into everyday life. The object contacts with a large number of random viewers outside the exhibition space in an unprotected, aggressive, indifferent environment. Video documentation of this action is an unbiased, naked fixation of the interaction between art object with real environment without any expectation of a certain result. The project raises questions without giving answers to them.
