It’s your fiction that interests me. Your studies of the interplay of human motives and emotion.

I tried to paint on canva : fists were paintbrushes & blood was oil.”

This piece is actually my first performance. My aim was to use my body as it really is : a material. So I fused a canva and a piece of waterproof fabric wherein I cut up a circle.

In that way, all I had to do was to hit the canvas with my fists, as hard as possible to paint the circle with my blood. I choose the geometrical form of the circle because in this work, I wanted to show what Man is able to do : From his most vulgar impulses like violence, up to his the most complex reasoning ability.

I did it during five minutes, I hit the canvas 569 times. I recorded it with a camera.

To my mind, that is what differentiates humans from animals : The competence of thinking before acting and to not yield to the most devouring impulses. I think this is why the Human is so tortured : He is without-cease tug between impulses and Reason.

Picture #1 : My fists some hours after the performance

Picture #2 : My fists two weeks later.

Pictures #3,4,5,6 & 7 : Some frame from the video recording I’ve made.

Picture #8 : The final object.

You tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more, tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake…You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that.
