5 MINUTES, 55 WORDS AND 250 ML OF BLOOD FOR HUMANITY 2004
Spazio Velvet. Naples 2004
I entered the gallery dressed in a blue Afghan Burka and stood on stage. I took off the Burka and remained in a dress slip and a corset. I began to recite 55 symbolic and evoking words relevant to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict at the time of the performance, while doing this a male nurse put a needle in my right arm and proceeded to extract 250 ml. of blood. I continued reciting until I finished with list of 55 words. The man took the needle out of my arm and handed me the blood in a jar. I dipped a brush in the blood and wrote the word Humanity on a white paper, this gave end to the performance which had a total duration of 5 minutes. I wore white knee length socks the whole time.
