Now the video is also showcased in the framework of a wide-scale exhibition of Ukrainian contemporary art Permanent Revolution in Budapest. “Ask Your Mom is a work about domestic violence and victimhood as its consequence,” says Alisa Lozhkina, exhibition curator. “The artist aspires to let the viewer in the closed-off space of domestic violence, widely accepted and often not realized, no matter how outrageous it may be.”
