Tatiana Kocmur and Liza Šimenc – MARY JANE
A performance as a living sculpture – that gradually disintegrates. Over-saturated costumes emphasize the body – surrounded by all social norms of ideal appearance – the objectification of the body codified as a source of pleasure – in the way of voyeurism, fetishism, idealization and identification.
Represents the coexistence of two bodies.
Interweaves colorful objects into an abstract mass.
Depicts a distorted image of imposed ideals.
Addresses issues related to the social perception of the female body.
Promotes the uniqueness of an individual’s appearance.
Reflects the sincere wearing of the beauty of an authentic body.
Liza Šimenc and Tatiana Kocmur have been creating together under the name Kresnička since 2017.
Participants: Red Button – experimental multimedia laboratory (Marko Bojičić), Ivana Kocmur, Martina Kocmur.
