Danger, Love

Performed at FORMA Festival, PERM international festival, Solyanka State Gallery, 2016

When I asked myself about what really worries me, it was a fear of love. Fear of suffering or dying is familiar to almost everyone. Only a few people can admit to a fear of love. The process of overcoming this fear in my performance is a seemingly-senseless act: I kiss ice that is attached to the ceiling.

Many people don’t allow each other to get emotionally close. They are even afraid to touch each other. Heart or kidney failures happen all the time;  my performance is about a “love failure,” and about overcoming a fear of love.

Performance, duration 2 hours
