Short cuts from an artist talk with Benedikte Esperi after the performance HURLING 2015(in collaboration with Ida Lod and Nina Cholet) in Gothenburg
"With excerpts from manifestations for bread, led by women in Gothenburg 1917 and Paris 1883, we examine how female bodies are represented and exposed in public space through history and today – 2015. ”What has changed? Has anything changed? What is there to be changed?”
-How can we manifest our aims in public space through an artistic practice with our bodies and make a change?
”After the revolution comes the reckoning. Exactly what has been accomplished, what changed? What individuals or groups, previously repressed or ignored now come into the foreground, gain status and confidence? How has the nature of ”reality” itself changed as a result of the revolution, peaceful in this case, that took place, and has continued, as a result of the feminist movement in art?” (Linda Nochlin, foreword in ”After the revolution, Women who transformed contemporary Art”, 2013)
