Soliloquy

Bauhaus Museum Weimar, restroom

The piece is part of a performative investigations that seek to narrate the multiple fictions around the cliché of what identity means today and how it multiplies in the social realm. This narrated identity questions the portrait as a traditional genre within the monology performed in the self-reflection. It is a narrated exploration that negotiates the misunderstandings between thought and the mouth, social roles, private and public spaces, and oneself. The public bathroom’s mirror is an interactive object that allows viewers to become temporarily part of the work. Being her sculptural elements, the artist uses mother tongues and animal tongues to intermix dissolving meanings, seek senses and create the sweating rhetoric.

Bathrooms are sacred public spaces bounded with issues of privacy, shame, and pleasure. This, undoubtedly very specific space defines or layers any action happening inside it. The public bathrooms have marginal status in the context of a larger institution, having a playful footnote to a larger affair.
