“Badrooms” deals with the traumatic and taboo subject of child sexual abuse, using dolls, handwritten testimonies of survivors, video and doll houses.

In the boxes, short sentences are handwritten: these testimonies, found on the web, are usually anonymous. They tell us about rape, sexual abuse, that adults have experienced when they were kids, when they were young and vulnerable. Testimonies have been written in French, Polish, and English. 3 languages fluently spoken by the artist. They could be written in each existing language.

Dolls are giving back their voice to the victims of sexual abuse, changing symbolically their victim role to a survivor one.

My brush is my sword.

“An iron hand in a velvet glove. That’s my art. That’s me. I’m not interested in pretty pictures for the sake of it. I put my anger, gratitude, love and greed for life together, I mix them and shout visually. I extract my fears, demons, and my rage against social injustice.

I use a diverse array of media: painting, installation, sculpture, collage, sketchbooks, video. Paper, canvas, tears, dolls, Louis Vuitton bags, barbed wire, old 18th Century missals, maps, whatever I find that can express the non intelligible.”

Badrooms was censored in the USA in 2017.

The exhibition title was “Girls just wanna have fun” regarding women, their voices and suffering. The exhibition was held at the First Parish Unitarian Church of Lexington, MA in June 2017.

“My answer to the censorship, was first informing what was being censored. Second, I provoked a discussion, with the “What happened at the Church” project (ongoing): it was presented at the Kathryn Schultz Gallery in Cambridge, MA in October 2017.”
