cleaning cloths, dirt

Cleaning treated as a cliché female activity, became a protest, a political manifesto against the notion of patriarchy. Dirt, used as a material to dye rags, is exposed in order to create a message: no woman no kraj! [pl. no woman no country!]
Project consist of three large scale banners/tapestry with different slogans: no woman no kraj! / purity is temporary and time to change the water!
technique: dirt on rag
