A Double Self-Portrait

2015

The installation consisting of Zhanna Gladko’s two self-portraits included a projection of the quote as a part:

“Simon Peter said to Him, “Let Mary leave us, for women are not worthy of Life.”
Jesus said, “I myself shall lead her in order to make her male, so that she too may become a living spirit resembling you males. For every woman who will make herself male will enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”

The Gospel of Thomas

As she quotes “The Gospel of Thomas” highlighting the incompleteness and the innate sin of women, the artist works around her own body and opens many stereotypes and cliches that dominate in the patriarchal society.
For six months she did special exercises for arm muscles. The self-portrait shows her before and after working out.
