In this performance Ewa Partum undresses in front of an audience and has several make-up artists age half of her face and body by simulating bags and wrinkles. Her previous statement My touch is a touch of a woman, featured in the series of works entitled Tautological Cinema, becomes Change. My Problem is a Problem of a Woman (1979), showing a shift in her work from a conceptualisation of femininity to political feminism. After two hours, the artist's body becomes the work of art, the basis for a conceptual discourse on mortality and the drama that ageing is for women. Thus, Partum foresees feminist discourse on old age, disease and cosmetic surgery, developed by other artists in the decades that followed.
