Women’s Taxi – Talking Portraits

Fragments from an eight-hour video installation, SI, 2002-2006, 66'

Women's Taxi comprises actions, installations, video portraits, performances and paintings. Confessing in a taxi, a public mobile unit, is a metaphor for Aprilija Lužar's art. Her work is a “confession” of personal distress that she publicly introduces and thereby socially materialises. The personal and the public overlap and become one for a moment. By using subtle performative tools, she speaks about how violence against women is not passé, but instead, is a reality to which we need to react and change it.

Part of the group exhibition Cheers to Women! 25 Years of Film and Video.
