“The exhibition of goods is a series of works inspired by the role of a woman in a traditional society, the one who takes into account the needs of one household in a large number of cases, carries out the hard work that is implied, and also entails various other roles that must be fulfilled She would constantly be suggesting how to look and shopping is offered as a cure for tranquility, thus becoming manipulated by a capitalist system that earns on a large number of women who are dissatisfied with their appearance.
Examining the possibilities of objectivization I use everyday household duties such as washing and ironing clothes as a visualization method. In this process, the line of delimitation between the female body and objects disappears. As I dehumanize a woman’s body by deliberately concealing the features of her face, I ask the question: where does personal identity cease and the body becomes only an object in the service of a certain function, and vice versa. “(Jelena Marjanović)
