PENALTY KICKS

2007

video, loop, TV, crates of beer, beer    

video shows penalty kicks performed by several men, while I, in the role of the goalkeeper, am trying to save the penalty kicks

the actions are taking turn fast while music is played in the background

constant repetition

the viewer can help himself with a beer and sit on one of the crates, creating a feeling of comfort

the problem of my own position as an individual/artist is presented through the undesirable position of a goalkeeper

although I have a very modest knowledge of football, typically male thing, by playing it I create a feeling of acceptance and belonging

criticism of gender stereotypes, the rules of mass games and imposed values
