Mind Split = Identical Twins II

“Hours the sisters of fates

leading conscious to preconscious

daughters of the night, of laws and power;

   measuring lengths and chance. 

symbols of associations

sensations of self incarnation.”

For this work, I projected a short movie I made earlier in the year: eye hole (2018).  I attached piezo mics on a coconut plant and placed a fan directed to it amplify its movements.  I began by asking for two participants without explaining their contribution to the work but asked them to sit down and let me blindfold them.  Later, I began to form the essence of a ritual: walking in circles and reading a text from my hand.  I massaged the feet of the participants with a hand-made oil.  The performance finished with a sound set composed live.

 

The performance was realised in Nicosia, Cyprus under the “Amorphous (BUZZ) Performance Art Series” at Koraï Project Space, Nicosia CY, 30 June 2018.
