Lachrymose Lachrymose

Lachrymose, performed in a night club atmosphere, used ritual water pouring from bowl to bowl as a symbolic cleansing in a country deeply torn. The ash line I drew down my head and torso contrasted with the ecstatic expressions on my face projected onto the back wall behind my action. A build-up of images was created as I worked my way around the circle of bowls: 1. the screen; 2. my live action; 3. the shadow of my live action on the screen; 4. the screen image on my body and 5. the laptop screen image.
