Asshole

In this artwork, Bibiana picked only on the word : ASSHOLE. This is a very derogatory term to address women. Most verbal abuse occurs in private. With this work, Bibiana invites the audience to experience this verbal abuse in private too. During the EMPU exhibition at Balai Budaya Yogyakarta, by scanning the barcode, the audience can access the video art. When it is continuously played, the audience can feel how uncomfortable it is to be treated like that.

This work addresses ABUSE experienced by women – not physical abuse but verbal abuse which often turns to emotional abuse. This kind of mistreatment is often initially not visible because the verbal abuse that degrade the women do not leave any physical scars.
