‘December 2019

This short piece is a commentary on Romania’s rape culture. A reading of the poem
Lovely” by Jennifer Williams, translated into Romanian, aims to give meaningful insight
into a woman’s mind when being catcalled, when being verbally abused and when feeling
unsafe in her own environment. The piece makes use of red lighting, expressing danger
but also femininity, and of projection tools, showing pictures and clips of raped,
kidnapped, and killed women throughout the history of the country. The end of the piece
consists of a shift from women’s loss of ownership over their voice caused by abuse to a
regaining of strength, portrayed by a series of videos projected on the subject consisting
of symbols of femininity. With a focus on issues originating from the recent couple of
decades, this piece is personal to the creator, a woman who grew up in post-Communist
Romania.
