This was a collaborative performance at Muscle Beach, Venice with Maxwell Runko. Ideas of radical self care and care are being explored through what is excess. Actions of cleansing the space and our selves are performed by obsessively spraying the perimeter and our bodies. We collected the sweat and excess moisture to oil pull and then to inject out of each other’s mouths into the bowl of flour and yeast.
Kneading the dough, like a massage
The dough fleshy, doughy, rising and breathing
We approach each body builder to ask if one will wax our legs, rejected by every person, we ultimately have to care for ourselves.
