Compassion and oppression are concepts that at first seem to be disconnected from each other. But for me, these terms manifest both in familial narratives and their patriarchal eastern nature and through my immersion into western society. In my work I explore the tension between compassion and oppression and how it shapes our constructed reality, where problems of gender representation are not sufficiently acknowledged. Through a series of silent performances in front of the camera I aim to challenge these societal constructs and unconscious patterns. This subject, along with its complexities and uncertainties, is represented by the impracticality of my performances. By using my body as a performative tool, I metaphorically represent gender roles and stereotypes.
