A piece simultaneously playing with and rejecting the role of the princess, as a socially conditioned figure. 4 positions are assumed in keeping with this concept. In-between these positions the artist breaks a wooden chair by smashing it with one leg, a process that unfolds as an unanticipated 45 minute struggle. The chair references the solidity of the social structure holding the position of the conditioned “princess”.
