The social mechanisms of control and surveillance govern how we view things and our bodies. In the same way, they have functioned as a method of exclusion, which for years has systematically silenced the voice of populations that have been victims of violence.
With this video art I seek to achieve a transgression and a rejection to those impositions through my active and non-passive perspective as an artist and a woman in a patriarchal society. The above can lead to questioning that viewing in public space and how the role played by the representation of women in the sexual construction
