Part I – to make the unknown known

The performer undresses herself and covers with wet clay at 0 °C, while her body shivers with intense breathes. She holds a knife that glides over her clay arm, so multiple cuts would form. Then the wounds are repeatedly fixed by new clay that melts perfectly onto the skin, which becomes a cycle of harm and recovery. The tension will cease once the body becomes aware of the present experience.

Part II (Video fragmented)

Six cameras died one by one in the cold. Unexpectedly, a recorder was still running which captured the chaotic moment after Part I pushing the physical and mental limit. My body was frozen and barely feel anything under the strong winds and thought I could fix the situation by myself. Eventually, I realized that I would not return safely from the island without my supports - credits for Carla Adra, Amanda WK Lee and Ella Yu.
