Performances_2015

myBodyisaPrison...

This performance exploits and investigates our body as prison of pain, pleasure, love, humiliation and 'self-conflict'.

Through self-torture, crazinisT explores and re-examines the body beyond the boundaries of the skin, its performative characters, limitations, freedoms, resilience and political resistance by presenting himself as though [sacrificed] to the public.

 

His work comments on the traumatic experiences of marginalized people, from racial violence to religious extremism and sexism.
