20th of May, 2019 18.00 – 21.00
A non-stop live installation
Gallery Myymälä2 (Uudenmaankatu, 23, Helsinki)

A multidisciplinary live installation devoted to the themes of embodied otherness, the (female) body and the limitations of it. Combining visual art, sound installation and live performance we bring forward a series of explorations of what it means to be a woman, what gender is and what can it be.
Can we be free of the expectations of gender? Can we break away from the norm, the male gaze and be honestly comfortable within our own bodies? How can we express our true self?

Body Experience(d) is an exploration of embodied pleasure and sensuality, a journey through inner and outer restrictions towards body celebration and joy.

Created, directed and performed by Anna Olkinuora and Katia Shklyar
