Marynia’s house of awkward pleasure by Marynia Fekecz
Marynia’s house of awkward pleasure is the examination and interpretation of Polish dancer Marynia Fekecz’s life in Canada. Drawing from childhood memories, animals and humans, Marynia creates her own world which can be defined as awkward or full of pleasure.
what we don’t see/site of sacrifice
It's often we don't see what one has given up when making decisions. A sacrifice can be made for another, an idea, something of value for ourselves or greater good of all or survival. At times all we have left is what we can hold onto.
