LONG TIME NO SEX, Berlin, 2012. Drops of love affairs experiences are written in red letters on a toilet paper. Beside the distortion of the song Je T’aime moi non plus, the work is a mix of erotic, funny and ironic random stories. The public display of intimate life details, with a non-fear of confronting sexual ethics, gender norms, and the tyranny of political correctness inspired by the so-called sex-positive feminist art. Fighting for the female sexuality deconstructing patriarchal structures of power and oppression, using the aesthetics of the ‘personal is political’ to the artistic practice as a method for empowerment. It is a mixture of the funny, erotic and ironic stories of love affairs written in red on a toilette paper.
