Perverse Osmosis - GIF series- 2016

Description

Executing a series of performative actions with my body fully submerged in water, I link violent struggles to sequences of underwater wonder:
graceful falling, floating and sinking, twisting and turning – oscillations ritualized through
repetition. Whatever the movement, I am supported by the water. Cleansing and life sustaining, the water comforts me in the execution of my violent revenge, which I perform as an erotic facade, exposing feelings and parts of the body imbued with shame. I return over and over again to the water, inflicting revenge on that fluid memory that has seeped into my bones, trusting the water to carry me through each performance, forcing me to catch my
breath. Under the water, I find I can breathe again.
