SYNOPSIS

Video performance is set inside an empty space in which the author moves with a blind over her eyes and a gun in her hands. She repeats a sentence "I don't exist" and occasionally shoots her gun. The space goes dark in the middle of the video. Over the video a sign "I always forget!." appears twice.


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.
