DON’T BELIEVE YOU ARE ANYTHING
In the performance piece “Don’t Believe You Are Anything,” different elements worked as mental reflective surfaces. The use of elements in the piece was sparse and repetition played a significant role.
For the duration of the performance I repeated the gestures of dipping my hand into a bowl of blood and then hitting myself in the face and head. I did this standing on top of a 10m long painting canvas. The blood splattered over the canvas, the strength of the blows forming a painting. My physical reaction also became a part of the painting, as my legs buckled from under me. The art piece ended when the organizer gives the agreed sign of 30 minutes.
