“DO NOT LOOK INTO GYPSY EYES”

HD Video,5’04”,2013

“Do not look into Gypsy eyes” is a mantra of the hyper-sexualized “Roma” woman. A Roma woman is exotic, erotic and exciting. On the same token she is a bit too dangerous, a bit too “dirty”, a bit too desirable – a woman whose eyes will seduce you, put a spell on you, and curse you.

This work is based on the stereotypes and prejudices of the Romani woman.

As a member of this community, as a woman and artist, I want to provoke the audience to attention against discrimination and the commodification of the female body.
