The Performative Body

The waters, they teach me how to breathe, 2023 
Video performance with plant, water, bucket, scoop 
02:28 Runtime 

It surfaces, it recedes. An attempt to save another, a withholding of words. Slow to anger, slow to speak. Breathing in, breathing out. 

The waters, am I healed, 2023
Live performance with yellow paper, lighter, cups, water, kettle

A gesture of love, an act of faith, an attempt to save another. 
A grudge, an unforgiveness, a weapon to yield during battle. 
To love, to forgive, to let go.
