ILONA (Joy) 

1.59min 2008

we see  a woman blowing balloons by a table. She is obviously preparing for a party.

She looks very happy and smiles a lot to the camera. 

Ilona is my personal study of the frustration felt by people who feel unhappy while trying to reach perfection.

“ Gender is a lived ideology – a system of ideas about men and women with which

we live our lives. As lived ideology those ideas get transformed into specific bodily

practices. Socially produced sex differences are embodied and lived out as real.

They are materialized as habit and taken for granted as second nature.” (Bourdieu)


ilona has been shown in various exhbitions, festivals & other venues.
