In the video three replicas of ancient venus figures are destroyed by "the modern woman". The subsequent pieces are then placed on pornographic excerpts concealing the model's identity. This installation aims at articulating the female experience, autonomy, and the historic struggle to rectify mistreatment and inequality. In this context the venus is an ancient relic that documents a comparative value system for the female body. The pornographic images represent a contemporary system. One revering women for their fertile potential with the ladder examining the potential for pleasure. The actor or "modern woman" breaks these figures as a means to dismantle mans first institution imposed on women.
