Works > Red on Red

This performance was made in response to a performance made by Hannes Lárusson. In that performance Mr. Lárusson hang in a red bag, shaped like a tongue or uterus, and called out words. His assistant, a woman, found words to rhyme with Mr. Lárussons words and wrote them down on a material that the red bag was strapped on to. I wanted to take a another approach to the piece, give it a more feministic twist. I placed red objects into my mouth and read the synonym for vagina out loud. Then my assistant, a man, wrote down what he heard. In this piece I was also influenced by the writings of Julia Kristeva.
