cut is the first piece i made during a workshop about aftershock and immortality, where we discussed topics such as utopia, end of the world, nuclear bunkers, natural disasters and, of course, immortality. cut is a performance about the act of suicide in a world where immortality has been achieved. if the right to life has been checked, can we talk about the right to death? suicide is not presented as a desperate act, or a sin, but as a depletion of all other options that inevitably lead to the final deed. the performance was under black light. i made a cage out of strings with the base in the form of a spiral. one by one, i cut all the strings where they led to a suspended bucket. the final act was cutting the strings that supported a bucket filled with glow in the dark liquid, that spilled over me.
