Aklumda (part.2/2) is the second video art performance, where the artist Marcy Petit engages 'the woman inside her' to walk for two hours with a pair of high heel shoes and a costume in a difficult and opposed environment. This character, which embodies a supposed model of femininity, is being ridiculed by the situation. As she progresses in her walk, the character is confronted by an environment that she does not recognize and has to overcome the obstacles despite the ridicule she faces.
During this new performance, Marcy Petit has walked around the island of Embiez, in the south of France.
