The Kitchen

2013 | performance

THE KITCHEN is vdeo documentation of performance that lasted for 360 minutes. Two performers create a chaotic and somewhat absurd situation that is a hyper-accentuated rolle playing. The work deals with the time of transition from women as the hero mother, towards the re traditionalised housewife in contemporary social conditions.
During the performance two artists are reading texts from the field of feminist theory from 70ies onward as well as cookbooks of the same period while cooking during the whole reading session. By confronting two tendencies – retraditionalization and emancipation, a chaotic situation emerges, an allegory of a disoriented social state.

In collaboration with Bojana Stamenković
