An Evening at Home, USA, 2011, HD video, sound, 7:31 min.

(...) Petschnig’s video slyly posits a contemporary response to the old politics of identity. Her mutable, sculptural presentations of erotic costuming equally avoid an easy alliance with third-wave feminism’s reclaiming sexuality as power. Instead, these intimate performances in front of (rather than for) the camera suggest a representation of pathos and loneliness among society’s fringe.
