SYNOPSIS

Two-channel video perfomance consists of two videos, Shadowless A and Shadowless B, which are screened side by side. The left video (Shadowless A) shows the figure in the room, and the right (Shadowless B) focuses on the face. Both videos share the same sound. The performance is set in an empty space in which the blindfolded author tries to find her way around. A voice from the background is unintelligibly guiding her, at times a sound of repeating punches is heard. The author tries to use a binocular, which in her situation stresses the state of being lost and powerless. Camera is static. The video ends with a fade-out.


NoHomeVideos© are 14 video performances, first presented at the International Festival of Contemporary Arts – City of Women in Ljubljana (2000), in which the author is dealing with the experience of being manipulated by the agents of power and control. Performances stress the power of individual's will and intelligence in a fight and resistance against pressure and abuse.
