'stuck in my stomach like a fart' is a poetic discourse into the creation of female sexuality within a patriarchal society touching upon sexual taboos, rape culture and gender inequality. While Lili Ullrich is literally eating herself - a body transformation design created by Elissa Lacoste - the audience explores the world of the abject through her poetry and visceral performance.
'stuck in my stomach like a fart' aims to give an insight into the psychotic state which the patriarchic society creates within the minds of the non-dominant.

The result of a binary hierarchical system is a sexuality which cannot be lived; thus becoming part of the abject.
