Why Women?

2004, video

DVD, Pal, color, 4:3, sound; 5'17'' (loop)

The work is a kind of observation of the habits and the reflexes of Bulgarian women in the public space of the city. The video shows a hidden "street hooligan" throwing eggs on unsuspecting women. The camera captures their reactions and, although it is a bit odd, the artistic action shows the sad statistics that almost all women consider themselves victims, none of them fights back. Despite the comic situation, the reaction of the women remains the same – the brocken eggs around them evoke fear and retreat from the "battlefield". They rush to hide away as if this is the only way to express their dissatisfaction.
