Commissioned for the show Antifeminism-Antimachismo, Gallery XXL, Sofia, Bulgaria

Text from the catalogue:

“The wounds and bruises are not only marks of violence — sometimes they are marks of love. Pain is part of human existence; it is part of the act of creation; giving birth hurts. For the video I use my makeup to draw bruises and hickies all over my body. I put bandages on my nipples, because they look like they should hurt. I am satisfied. I had an orgasm.”
