Hush! Behind the wall mother is sleeping, 2020, collaboration: Alexander Sanfirov, video, 5:04 min.
Hush! behind the wall mother is sleeping! is an exploration of my own sexuality through cultural experience of russian women, experience of an older generation, through their traditions and taboos related to sex and sexuality. The main action in my performance is based on the rural tradition of hanging bed sheets outside after the wedding night as the innocence evidence a bride. There’re five morals written on it:
Hush behind the wall mother is sleeping!
be innocent! don’t smile!
men will stare at you!
get your hands out of blanket!
only for love!
