Fear No More the Heat of the Sun: The Artist Drinks An Hour’s Breath

Performance, 1 hour and 5 seconds 2015

 

For this work I froze one small jar inside a larger one, and for one hour, in the sun, I forced my breath into the small jar through a straw, so that the breath condensed into liquid at the bottom, I then drank the breath. The piece was a reflection on mortality and the circular nature of life, the title is inspired by Virginia Woolf’s quotation of Cymbeline in Mrs. Dalloway
