Distorted and compulsively turned inward, anger implodes and turns into frustration, obsession, or psychosis. With Hellcat, Shade Théret and Magdalena Mitterhofer examine implosions of female rage that lead to uncontrolled expressive moments, if not outbursts.
They start from two self-confessed works: fragments from Anne Sexton's Live or Die (1966) are restructured according to the interview format of Paolo Pasolini's Comizi d'amore (1965).
These sources deal with mental illness and mother-daughter relationships, respectively, and provide insight into the attitudes of representatives of different social classes in Italy at the time towards the phenomena of love and sexuality.
