"Le corps est une matière particulièrement efficace pour discipliner les esprits."

 

(Elsa Dorlin author, philosopher, teacher Paris 8 University, podcast Où sont les casseuses, Les couilles sur les tables, décembre 2018)

"The body is a particularly efficient matter in order to discipline the spirits."

menocare reports an unplanned event of my personal life and attempts to use intimate story to a universal concern. The end of my love relationship and my subjectivity as an individual in the political and social context of 2019 triggers the work. I attempt to contextualize my female body in the larger landscape of 2019, but also in my personal life. My body acts as a filter to read many of my political and emotional contradictions. By diverse manipulations of a 20-meter rope, amongst other, throwing it over and over, I try to understand different aspect of my need for expression of violence and anger within my female-identifying body and, further what could come after.
