in 2016 i happened to meet an anarchist and wanderer, Rose. the autumn was harsh and the freezing Ukrainian squat made us trust each other more than ever. that's how we found out that since a long while we both 've been dreaming to get rid of the hair on the head. as by this hair we were pulled as punishment for being the way we are, and forced to comb it regularly to be who we are not. so we had two identical white dresses made, got two sputnik blades and a lighter, and sketched a little text:
"In a hierarchal society, where certain people decide the standarts for others to follow, conformity and nonconformity too heavily influences one's identity. women are especially forced to build their identities of empty standarts. Sometimes the only way to go beyond the debilitating mental prisms is to radically break them"
