BLUE HYSTERIA, 2015
2 min 30 sec, HD video (sound by Tohm Judson)
I question how to define and who decides normality/abnormality in female bodies by creating a series of hysterical actions with Barbie doll as a metaphor of an idealized, regulated and stereotyped female body. In Blue Hysteria, I tried to transform hysterical female bodies from inappropriate and uncontrolled psychological disorder to refusal to be a beautiful object and resistance against body regulation like flapping the wings for entire freedom.
