Video / Performance
Duration: 5 Mins 18 seconds.
“I wonder why” is a video recording of a performance. It shows the psychological impact of when the individual goes away from the normal standards of the social expectation and how the society punishes a female betrayer. The work is done with five male friends of mine.
I went through my first breakup after I spent 11 years with my ex-boyfriend. In my case, people had strong opinions about our breakup. I seem to went to the opposite side and breaking the expectations of their originals. I have been questioned by others. those questions and suggestions drive me to think about what is the social expectations for an individual person? If a woman violates the expectations of the public, how will she be punished as a traitor?
