Mother Earth - video art (2005)

When sculpturing this iron and concrete 2meter height figure, I was dealing with sexuality / femininity, outside silence/ inside scream, emptiness / embrace, giving life/ taking freedom, universal love/ hate of being a woman. I filmed myself naked, outside, at night, circling Mother Earth in a private tribal ceremony of lighting fire and giving water. These actions contradict themselves, as I contradict the statue, but at the same time this is symbiotic ritual that imitates the cycle of life.
