Breasts as eyes (boobeyes), is a potent and recurring trope in Zhuleva’s work, representing the tacit knowledge carried by all women, that they are being watched and judged primarily on their sexual attractiveness. The symbol acknowledges the patriarchal fear that the power of unbridled female sexuality is supremely dangerous and must be checked. In this iconic piece, Zhuleva is stating to the patriarchy that women are aware of all the control and obfuscation to which they have been subject, and will not be party to it any more.
