Women in Agony

201600:02:14Video Art
Women in Agony aims to create a strong visual imagery of a unanimous female crowd on a busy Sunday afternoon in Oxford circus. 16 female performers dressed in exactly the same dresses, brown hair wigs holding loads of shopping bags gather in a pavement between two roads, form a circle and scream. This performance makes a comment on how fashion industries makes people feel the need to be unique and special but they end up looking exactly the same.
