Performance, Space Intervention. Twelve young women’s dressed equal, walking through a closed circuit repeated times. I obtained the collaboration of thirteen women who voluntered to participate in this performance even though they knew that the piece was meant to be understood as a self-criticism of us as women. The orange color of the uniforms was meant to remind the viewer of the uniforms of prisoners who are condemned to death. I used a similar make-up scheme for all the women, as well as similar hairstyles and shoes. The idea was to evoke an image of a living mannequin. The piece was intended as a criticism of uniform women who don’t break the cycles or the links that tie her down in the comings and goings of daily life which tend to follow a single pattern. Untitled Women are the women who remain inert in society.
