Tal Ben Zvi text: “the artist produces Texts video and performance ritual of transition rights that make it possible to cope with anxiety and fear of an uncontrolled change of the face and body. She moves between transformation situations in which changes take place aboveground and transformation situations that take place in the inner organs. In the course of this rites she brings herself to extreme situations, a desire to confront, to overcome and produce action that is conscious of itself.
The texts exist as wall-window works of art and as a performance. the multitude of texts, the multitude of woman and the multitude of performances enable a feminine character to wear and remove different shapes. She describe a passive feminine body in extreme violence situation, manifested in process of transformation in the internal and external organ of feminine body. At the basis of the violence situations there is spatial collapse or a real fall that causes the feminine body to be in state of penetrating invasion of the body.”
