the intention is finally to have a corresponding tryptych of performances, 1 hr each, while they play at the same time.because i failed immaculately, i put an earlier performance in the middle, which is not supposed to be there.but its only to visualize a lill bit better how i would want it to look like.
in this tryptych, i wanted to expand my earlier performance catch 'n release into a three-part performace, playing at the same time. the first part the mummyfying of myself, now until im fully covered and confined in wool. the second part, an hr of spinning round, until the wool comes off again, and the last part, the cutting through and taking off the last part of wool that hadn't come off yet. In this work, the pain, overlapping theme of the previous work, was central. This to show once more, how suffocating and imprisoning all this sexism growing up, genderroles and sexual violence that my work was about, actually is. and how hard it is to get this confinement off of you, to go against genderroles and performativity, to take up your place. to spread your wings. to take your chains off. how hard of a journey it is, to fight for your freedom, safety and comfort. The aftermath of the performances was enormously visable, and this traumatization of myself was actually the core,. so the endurance was important, a symbol for the actual pain.
