looks like nobody is taking care of the plants (part II), performance + video + lavender, 20-25min, 2019, Sissi Club, Marseille (France)



looks like nobody is taking care of the plants (2019) is a performance about abuse system in the art world. I always wondered how the art world is instrumentalizing people of color and tragic narratives as a way to fill the blanks, to avoid guilt, to be perceived as “open” in this liberal world.

With cookies, compliments
