Å½elibskÃ¡, who pioneers Slovak video art, started dealing with corporeality and female eroticism already in the late sixties. The expressive apparatus of her intermedia works in the form of objects and environment art from the period represented aÂ unique platform of domestic feminist art. Her interest in these issues prevailed in the following decades, when she approached it mostly through action forms of art. Å½elibskÃ¡âs video installations from the nineties reflect the attributes of female corporeality, along with deconstructing or relativizing the traditional patterns of the perception of women. In the video, Å½elibskÃ¡ uses her specific poetics to capture the nuances and vicissitudes of the transformation of female teenagers towards womanhood. The presented installationâbased on cymbals (represented through sound) and plexiglas covers as allusions of female breastsâutilizes new media to extend its interpretation possibilities.
