CALCINATIO

VIDEO PERFORMANCE, 2007

SENSUALITY

In The Fourth Season, cherries are used as a symbol of desire and the cause of rejection, which is thrown back at my face. Its title addresses the winter, when everything is transformed by a potential death. The camera in close up shows me awaiting for someone who will never appear on the video. Meanwhile, I am transformed both by internal and external impositions inferred by my insistent and insolent desire.

 

The Fourth Season is part of the live performance Walk East – Erotic Poems by Norma Kluster.
