Perfectly Pink casts a glance towards the topic of the female body as both an influenced subject and an influencing subject. Using imposed stereotypes, clichés and super-erotic images, the performance opens up questions about pleasure, desire and erotic fascination. In the context of the many debates on women rights taking place locally and globally, two renowned female artists - Iva Sveshtarova and Violeta Vitanova - confidently enter the stage to put under magnifying glass attitudes towards female body and to share their own point of view on this major topic. As the title suggests - they are doing it with sense of humor and the necessary amount of (self)irony.
The project is realized with the financial support of the Sofia Municipality Program “Culture” of for 2018 and with the cooperation of ETUD Gallery, Goethe-Institut Bulgaria and The National Palace of Culture.
