BIG BAD, 2008, 16 mm Film on dvd, 1’40”, loop

Big Bad shows a raging woman in a white space. She’s dressed in a little girls princess dress. The clumsy and primitive movement reveals the uncontrolled feminine figure of the protagonist. A childlike manner of expression contradicts the grown female figure. Big Bad portrays a woman as a large species related to the family of apes, unable to hide it’s emotions behind learned behavior codes and restrictions.
