Me as mussels (After Marcel Broodthaers)

by Julia Troyke

On the corner are hanging photographic four portraits. In each portrait in front of the face a shell, which moves the same as the mouth. In the history of art shells are used as a symbol of women and vagina. But the people who made the symbol are not women. The women in portrait who lost their lost their voice, screaming in front of this empty symbol.
