6/2/17 (WINE)

Performative Video (live performance) 20 min. 2017

The video begins with a still image of two crystal vessels on the floor of a white space. The larger vessel is filled with a dark red wine. I am dressed in a draped white cloth and I enter from the left and slowly sits down behind the vessels. I take my time, breathe, then reach for the smaller vessel, dip it into the wine, and raise it to my mouth as if to drink. The wine spills down my chin and onto my garment. I repeat this action until all of the wine is gone from the larger vessel, slowly staining my face and garment, seeping through the cloth and ultimately pooling onto the floor.
