On Permanence and Other Needs

Performance / Video / Video – Installation
2013 – 2015

For about 5 minutes accompanied by sound, I licked a cactus. The work shows a dialogue between the softness of the tongue and the hurtful thorns of the cactus. 

We should confront things without fear. Loving at all costs could be a strategy for living with all those external antagonisms that cause us so much pain, sadness, and disappointment. It is necessary to resist them, if we want to live with ourselves.

This piece is the result of decisions I’ve made as a way of life; it illustrates my attitude and I think of it as a reminder to face hurtful situations with my best intentions.

This piece is a performance that is presented as installation, video or video installation.
