“I Put a Spell On You” is a digital video performance and a web series by the artists Daniela Takeva & Nikolina Nedjalkova.
Like many millennial women we see a reclamation of female power in the witch and feminist identities. Both conjure and counter a tortuous history of misogyny and can be emblematic of woman overcoming oppression. Honoring the witch as a feminist icon we chose Baba Yaga who is one of the most memorable and distinctive figures in eastern European folklore. In these four Episodes of a web series we perform the role of this supernatural being and take a specific look at Bulgarian mysticism. In these video performances, we reinterpret the witch and occultism in general in a speculative fiction as a feminist artistic act.
