Auf der Biennale von Venedig 2007 zeigte Sophie Whettnall Videos und Still’s

A video called “Shadow Boxing” by Sophie Whettnall shows a woman standing motionless while a boxer dances and jabs around her, his fist coming just millimeters from her face. The camera pans in. We see her hair move with the breeze of passing blows. Her expression remains impassive. She pretends to ignore the violence.
