Car Deconstruction has very simple premises. At the workshop/performance, the artist and a group of inquisitive girls disassemble a car. They not only learn how to use tools, but also how to use their physical skills. The goal of a three-day deconstruction was not to fully disassemble a car but rather find and take an autonomous position. The girls are confronted with unfamiliar tools and materials, the curious eyes of the audience and new possibilities of using their own physical skills and strengths. Other than the actual disassembling, the car deconstruction performance aims to deconstruct the social categories of identity, gender issues and gender roles. Dina Rončević was confronted with the issue of socially determined gender roles in her professional retraining when as a woman she found herself in a distinctively male environment. Instead of being defeated by the obstacles, she found another way out – creativity.
